NBA Trade Rumors: 'Melo and 15 Players Who Desperately Need a Relocation

A new year is upon us, and with that new year will come major changes in the NBA.

The next two months will be dominated by hundreds of trade rumors and reports of players that will be potentially be moved by the February trading deadline.

The No. 1 name on everyone's wish list is Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony.

Offseason rumors of Anthony leaving the Denver Nuggets in the summer of 2011 have driven the rumors of the Nuggets potentially trading Anthony in order to get some return for their star.

I mean, I don't think the Nuggets want to end up with future draft picks and a trade exception like the Cleveland Cavaliers got when LeBron James left.

The Anthony rumors have him ending up anywhere from New York to New Jersey, with a couple of surprise teams like the Chicago Bulls and Dallas Mavericks possibly making plays for him before the trading deadline.

But Anthony won't be the only player on the move before the deadline.

Thanks to a slew of NBA teams performing well below their expected levels, there are going to be a wide variety of players available over the next two months.

These players will be traded because they are older veterans seeking a shot at a championship, young players who don't fit in the rotation and because teams are attempting to clear up cap space.

There will be plenty of names rumored to be on the move, but I have narrowed down a list of 15 potential players who should be moved by the deadline.

As always, don't forget to comment with players that you think will be on the move as well.
