Trade rumors about Antawn Jamison going to New Orleans have been circulating for some time now. There is considerable doubt as to whether or not a deal can be worked out for Jamison's last year under contract, as it is valued at $15.1 million.
With the trade deadline approaching, talk of Dwight Howard leaving Orlando have been circulating well within the rumor mill. Some speculation about Howard joining the Lakers has been floating around, but Howard has spoken out against a trade and free agency, saying he isn't going anywhere.

Charlotte is interested in Ron Artest. While there is a lot of speculation surrounding the reigning NBA champ, it has been said not to expect a deal.

Carmelo Anthony's name has been going 'round and 'round the NBA rumor mill. First, it was the Nets, though the deal fell apart shortly before the Nuggets and Nets played.
Now, rumor has it that the owner of the Knicks is preparing to move on 'Melo, who has mentioned in the past that New York was his preferred destination. But with fresh interest shown from the Lakers recently, it's hard to say where the old Syracuse forward may end up.
