With the 2011-12 NBA season starting less than four weeks from today, general managers are scrambling to make the proper moves necessary in order to get their teams on the right track and looking to either re-build or make a significant postseason push.
Despite the 2011 free-agency class not having too many big names and all of the superstars being a part of the 2012 free agency, a number of big names could eventually be on the move within the next three weeks, with a few of those names being recent MVP contenders.
Teams are sure to be in a frenzy when looking for the right player this offseason and it's going to result in overspending on certain free agents and the trading of big-name players that have become disgruntled with the direction of their organization.
These possible trades and signings would greatly shake up the balance of power atop both conferences.
These five players have already been in the talk of trade and free-agency rumors. We'll see just who these players are and where they could find themselves very soon.
