It could also be a bad wheel bearing. Check the brakes first though.

You could remove the brake pads and put the caliper back without any pads, and try spinning the wheel again. If the problem persists, then it is most likely a wheel bearing. If the problem went away, then it is most likely a stuck caliper or a brake line issue.
