According to Caesars, the Los Angeles Lakers are enormous favorites at -500 to land Anthony Davis through trade with the New Orleans Pelicans. The Knicks have the second-highest odds at +375.
While the Lakers have considerable trade assets, it’s not the main reason why they are such heavy favorites.
The odds released by Caesars is the latest example of how one game could change the immediate landscape of the NBA. With Kevin Durant having possibly ruptured his right Achilles tendon, the Knicks’ approach to the off-season has quickly become complicated.
