Kevin Durant may be pushing us to the brink of utter NBA anarchy, and bettors are in for the chaos.

Online bookmaker this week released odds for former MVP Durant’s next team if he decides to pursue a trade with the Brooklyn Nets. The Miami Heat, Memphis Grizzlies and Atlanta Hawks are listed as the top three betting favorites. Two of Durant’s former teams (the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Golden State Warriors) are also in the top ten.

Here is the full list:

Miami Heat +250
Memphis Grizzlies +400
Atlanta Hawks +450
Phoenix Suns +500
Los Angeles Clippers +550
New York Knicks +600
Portland Trail Blazers +750
Oklahoma City Thunder +800
Los Angeles Lakers +1200
Golden State Warriors +1400

In addition to Miami’s scenic location and top contender status in the East, Durant played with Heat stars Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Kyle Lowry on Team USA’s Olympic gold medal-winning squads. . The Grizzlies, meanwhile, are a growing youth team that has Durant’s former teammate Steven Adams on the roster and Taylor Jenkins (who, like Durant, has Texas State ties) as the roster. head coach. The Hawks are also an exciting young team led by Coach Nate McMillan, a great member of the team that drafted Durant from the Seattle SuperSonics.

It remains unclear whether Durant, who is under contract for the next four seasons and owed nearly $200 million, actually wants to leave Brooklyn. But that seems like a definite possibility right now, and opposing teams will be ready to bombard Durant’s phone lines if he asks for a move.
