The 2010 free agency period is winding down, lending way to talks of next year's free agent class already.
The destinations of the king of that class, Carmelo Anthony, are already being discussed. With two years left on his contract and a chance to opt out after next season, Anthony will have the chance to test the free agent waters in 2011.
Talks of Anthony fleeing to New York have already begun. Analysts believe Anthony will team up with Amar'e Stoudemire and Chris Paul for the Knicks.
After this summer's offseason, anything is possible. All three playing for the Knicks seems like a very likely option at the moment.
But what other teams will try to acquire Anthony?
Will he return to Denver?
Will he be the piece needed by contending teams to make that playoff push?
We'll have to wait until next summer, but it's still fun to debate. Here are the top five destinations for Carmelo, excluding the Knicks.
