NBA Rumors: Players Who May Be Moved Before the Start of the 2011-12 Season

Matt Shetler@@buccos12Correspondent IDecember 2, 2011

NBA free agency will start in about a week, but with the less-than spectacular class of 2011, the biggest rumors to follow don't involve the guys that will be signing, but instead the guys will be traded.

As things stand now, no players can be moved just yet, but several could be moved before the 2011-12 NBA season tips off on Christmas Day.

Let's take a quick look at a few of the names on the block.

Dwight Howard: Could Howard really be moved in the next few weeks? According to ESPN's Marc Stein, yes. The Howard situation could definitely heat up in the next week or so.

Chris Paul: Paul wants to end up in a New York Knicks uniform and his agent has requested a trade. While the Knicks don't have many resources to get a deal done, will New Orleans want to avoid a distraction and move Paul quickly?

Paul Millsap: The Utah Jazz like youngsters Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter, which means one of their current big guys, Millsap or Al Jefferson, will likely be dealt.

Chris Kaman: The Clippers will look to re-sign restricted free agent DeAndre Jordan and could look to deal Kaman in the process, possibly landing Detroit's Tayshaun Prince.
