Bad caliper bushings. Loose caliper bolts. Loose caliper-bracket bolts. Cracked or bent wheel-spokes, or loose wheel.........

Any one of those, and probably a few other problems possible (this is just off the top of my head here).

What part of the caliper is smacking the wheel?

If it is the face of the caliper (the part you can see with the wheel on) you've definetly got a wheel issue.

Otherwise. There's 4 attaching points for the calipers to the car. The first is a pin at the bottom of the caliper. It has an E-Clip and a Washer on the back side of it. If that pin is missing, there is the POTENTIAL for the entire caliper to want to come off.

The second is at the top of the caliper assembly. It's more of just a notch in the brake pads themselves. Just check to make sure it is pushed in and tight.

The last two are the caliper bracket bolts themselves. The were originally loctited from the factory, so they SHOULD be good and tight, unless someone's had them off the car for some reason. Just check the tightness.

If that doesn't seem to solve the problem... There isn't much more that would cause the caliper to flop around.
