Could Kevin Durant be a member of the Denver Nuggets this upcoming season? The odds don’t look great but are better than most, according to one sportsbook.
BetRivers has Denver at +6,000 odds — meaning a $100 bet would win $6,000 — to land the 12-time all-star by the opening of the 2022-23 NBA regular season. The Nuggets are tied for the 10th-best odds.
The Nets (his current team) and the Suns are tied for the best odds at +125, followed by the Raptors (+300), Heat (+1,200), Pelicans (+1,200) and Warriors (+1,600).
Durant, 33, averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 6.4 assists in 55 games for Brooklyn last season.
