The NBA's trade deadline is less than two weeks away, but there haven't been quite as many rumors as we're used to this February.

Carmelo Anthony has dominated speculation since before the start of the 2010-11 season and there is no guarantee the Nuggets will move him before the Feb. 24 deadline.

So if Anthony isn't dealt, will the deadline come and go without much movement?

It's too early to tell, but at least one NBA agent believes that an Anthony trade would lead to more action across the league.

"The entire trade market through the NBA seems quiet, waiting for the potential Carmelo trade to occur," the agent told RealGM's Andrew Perna via e-mail. "That should have a domino effect throughout the league."

So if you're looking for a host of trades, you'd better hope Denver decides to part with their All-Star forward.
