The blockbuster NBA trade we were all waiting on took place earlier today. The Philadelphia 76ers sent disgruntled star Ben Simmons along with Seth Curry, Andre Drummond and two first-round draft picks to the Brooklyn Nets for All-Star James Harden.
This trade has shaken up the NBA Futures market. Before the trade was made, the Philadelphia 76ers were +1200 to win the NBA Title. They are now +500 to win it all. Prior to the deal, the Brooklyn Nets were +450 to win it all, and they now sit even with Philly at +500.
In the Eastern Conference Champions market on PointsBet, the 76ers are now the favorites to win the east at +275, followed by the Bucks at +300, and the Nets at +350. Before the trade, the Sixers were +650 and the Nets were just +220.
