The Washington Wizards and Houston Rockets have agreed to trade two disgruntled star point guards, John Wall and Russell Westbrook, in a blockbuster deal that has dramatically altered NBA futures for both teams.

Dave Mason of BetOnline posted the price changes Thursday morning.

While oddsmakers do not see the Wizards competitive in 2021, Westbrook's move to DC does send the division price down from +2000 to +1000.

His departure from Houston has resulted in a near two-point change in the price, going in the wrong direction, from +275 to +425.  The Rockets were widely seen as much more competitive with Westbrook. BetOnline and other books were slow to post futures on either team while awaiting final word on any trade.  Discussions had been stalled since mid-November.

The Wizards are sending Wall and a lottery-protected 2023 first-round NBA draft pick to the Rockets for Westbrook in a deal that both players wanted and had been simmering for weeks.
