The NBA's midseason trade deadline is Feb. 23, and there are a handful of players teams are making available in a deal if the price is right.
Here are 14 players (like Carmelo Anthony) who are on the trading block 14 days before the deadline passes.

Wilson Chandler, SF, Denver Nuggets
Chandler is having one of the best statistical years of his career in his ninth NBA season, but USA Today has reported he wants out to seek a bigger role somewhere else.

Jahlil Okafor, C, Philadelphia 76ers
The Sixers were reportedly deep in talks with the Pelicans to send Okafor to New Orleans this week, and while that deal may or may not end up being finalized, it's clear that Philly is intent on moving one of its big men before the deadline passes.
Nerlens Noel, PF, Philadelphia 76ers
Noel was the most vocal about a trade needing to happen before the season began, and while Okafor may have passed him up on the likely-to-be-dealt list, Noel still could be headed out if the right offer comes along.
Serge Ibaka, PF, Orlando Magic
Orlando traded for Ibaka in the offseason hoping he'd help the team contend for a postseason spot, but the Magic are 20-34, and Ibaka will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. He really could help a contender, and Orlando should deal him if there's a low probability that he'd ultimately re-sign.

Jimmy Butler, SF, Chicago Bulls
We have no idea whther Butler is actually on the trading block, and it would be foolish for the Bulls to attempt to deal their best player unless an incredible package came along. But the front office hasn't made the best decisions, the head coach seems to have little control over the team, and Butler's name keeps popping up in rumors, somewhat inexplicably. The situation in Chicago is volatile, to say the very least.

Aron Baynes, C, Detroit Pistons
Baynes is averaging just 15.5 minutes per game coming off the bench, but it's widely believed that he's capable of much more. And since he'll almost certainly decline his player option to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, the report that the Pistons are shopping him completely makes sense.
Andrew Bogut, C, Dallas Mavericks
The Mavericks have played better lately and are just three games out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the West despite their 20-32 record. Bogut will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and Dallas would be wise to listen to offers as contenders come calling. But if the playoffs are within reach, it's difficult to see Mark Cuban throwing in the towel by dealing a difference-maker for spare parts.
Omer Asik, C, New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans are desperate to get Anthony Davis some frontcourt help, and Asik has not performed well at all, especially in relation to his contract, which guarantees him more than $10 million and $11 million in each of the next two seasons. New Orleans reportedly is shopping him, and tried to include him in the trade talks with the Sixers most recently.
DeMarcus Cousins, C, Sacramento Kings
Kings GM Vlade Divac came out and said, "We're not trading DeMarcus," but one has to wonder if that's because the offers have been underwhelming at best. Cousins is unquestionably an All-Star talent, but his on-court demeanor is a disaster, and would be a detriment to any team looking to acquire him that didn't already have a strong, veteran locker room presence.
Ricky Rubio, PG, Minnesota Timberwolves
A mid-January report stated that the Timberwolves were actively shopping Rubio, which shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. Minnesota drafted Kris Dunn with the hope that he'd be the franchise's long-term solution at point guard, while Rubio, now in his sixth NBA season, still hasn't developed a consistent outside shot.
Marcus Smart, PG, Boston Celtics
We're not sure if Smart is on the trade block, but it's clear that the Celtics can't beat the Cavaliers in the playoffs as currently constructed, and their supposed wealth of assets won't be enough to return a difference-maker all by themselves. Smart is the rotation player that Boston wouldn't mind parting with if the right deal came along.
Brandon Knight, PG, Phoenix Suns
The Suns should look to be active at the trade deadline, with the team out of contention for the playoffs and having a questionable mix of veterans and young players on the roster. Knight moved to a reserve role this season, but he's capable of scoring in bunches, and could be a nice fit on a team that needs an additional offensive punch.
Paul George, SF, Indiana Pacers
Pacers president Larry Bird would be more than happy to lock up George on a long-term deal to keep him the face of the franchise. But if there's the slightest indication that George might want to play elsewhere, then Indiana would be smart to get assets in return for the team's biggest star. There's no indication that George is being shopped, but reports are out there that teams are pursuing him, and that should be enough to make Pacers fans nervous.

Carmelo Anthony, SF, New York Knicks
Anthony has a no-trade clause, so the decision to leave New York is ultimately up to him. Phil Jackson may have his reasons for trying to push Anthony out, but the most likely scenario is that Melo finishes the season with the Knicks, and takes some time to more seriously contemplate a change of scenery over the summer. Even then, we're not so sure that he ends up choosing to leave New York City.
