With the NBA season right around the corner, let's dive into how the futures market has taken shape since our September update.
Perhaps no team's stock has risen more than the Bulls' this offseason. After opening at 27.5 and ticking all the way up to 33.5 last month, Chicago's again on the move to 34.
It looks as if the Thunder will settle in at 31.5 barring any late action. Oklahoma City opened at a whopping 46.5 wins - though that was before the franchise traded both Russell Westbrook and Paul George.
Despite playing in the weaker conference, the Nets continue to trend down. They opened at 47.5, were bumped down to 44.5, and now sit at 43.
There's been a little love recently for the Raptors in the Atlantic. With most of its young core intact after a championship season, but having lost its star player, Toronto feels like a boom-or-bust team for 2019-20.
The Heat and Magic being at 11-10 makes more sense than their respective opening prices. Did we forget that Orlando made it to the postseason last year and brought back everyone? Also, I'd sell the hell out of the Hawks at 13-2. They'll likely need to outdo their win total from last season by 10-plus games to win the division.
In hindsight, 7-1 may have been a terrible opener on the Warriors. They still have tons of talent and Klay Thompson could be back sooner than expected.
This is one we examined back in August. Here's how things have shaken up since:
|Michael Porter Jr.||25-1||25-1|
|Kevin Porter Jr.||1000-1||100-1|
Zion still reigns supreme. Who'd have thunk it?
Hayes' stock has been way down throughout the summer. The Pelicans rookie opened at 40-1 and now sits at 80-1. It's almost as if someone sharing the same court as Williamson on a nightly basis is a terrible choice for Rookie of the Year.
Hachimura opened at 50-1 and dipped all the way down to 12-1 before settling in at 16-1. He'll get his opportunities with the lowly Wizards but his price got a bit out of hand following the summer league.
