With the NBA trade deadline right around the corner, rumors are starting to intensify as teams are looking to fill holes in their roster before the postseason.

While a lot of the rumors have been focused on Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard, Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest has slowly started to surface into the headlines.

Artest is averaging a career-low 28 minutes per game and has been complaining about his lack of playing time recently. The 11-year veteran is also averaging a career low in points (8.2), rebounds (3.0) and steals (1.4).

This has translated into frustration for Artest and rumors have begun to swirl.

With the Lakers sitting on the No. 3 seed in the West and having a sub-par record against elite teams, they seem to be in the market for a trade. Artest is a perfect bargaining chip for teams looking to acquire cap relief next season when his contract comes off the books.

Here are 10 potential landing spots for Artest.
