Kevin Durant is staying in Brooklyn.  After all of THAT!!!  For the past months, BetOnline has been offering odds on where Kevin Durant will be playing in Week 1.  New teams seemed to be favored every two weeks, pretty much any time Durant caused a ruckus.

BetOnline has quickly adjusted their NBA Championship odds to reflect the news, essentially cutting the Nets' title chances in half.

“We have agreed to move forward with our partnership,” read a Twitter statement from Sean Marks, the Nets’ general manager. “We are focusing on basketball, with one collective goal in mind: build a lasting franchise to bring a championship to Brooklyn.”

The Nets had +1400 odds before Durant committed to playing during the 2022-23 season, but now they are listed at +750.

Additionally, they have set the Nets' victory total at 51.5 games, just behind the Bucks (53), Clippers (52.5), Suns (52.5) and Warriors (52).
