- Chris Paul, Paul George, and Markelle Fultz are among the players with odds to leave their current teams this offseason.
- CP3 (+600) and PG (+300) are also given odds to become LeBron James’ teammate next season.
On Wednesday, one book blessed NBA bettors with exactly what they wanted: More offseason props.
Odds on the next stop for LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard have been available for some time now, but this round of props brings a variety of names into the mix. Chris Paul, Markelle Fultz and Kemba Walker are among the players listed with odds to leave town this summer.
Perhaps more intriguing, however, are the odds on LeBron’s future teammates. Should he look to comprise a superteam, they also have odds on three players with whom he might join forces.
Here we go.
The oddsmakers feel pretty strongly that DeAndre Jordan won’t be in a Clippers uniform to open the season. When you consider yesterday’s trade that brought Marcin Gortat to Los Angeles, a DeAndre move seems all the more likely.
Fultz’s future appears to be the most uncertain, as his -160 odds imply just a 59% chance of remaining with the 76ers next season. A little low if you ask me, but what do I know.
As for LeBron’s potential superteam …
Considering that odds for Paul George to leave OKC are listed at signicant plus-money, it’s not a shock to see that his teammate odds are higher than the other names on this list.
Assuming Chris Paul isn’t leaving Houston, LeBron would have to join the Rockets to play alongside CP3. His current odds to land there sit anywhere from +650 to +950.
