Lakers Kings Trade Rumors Heating Up: Lakers Championship Odds Will be Slashed

(Gambling911.com Sports Wire) – While both NBA teams were bottom feeders last season, a blockbuster trade between the Sacramento Kings and LA Lakers could cause a serious alteration in the future odds for a Championship.

The one main influencer will be a DeMarcus Cousins trade to LA.  And the odds will get reduced provided the Lakers don’t trade away Kobe Bryant (that won’t happen so no worries there).

“We are looking at 60-1 current to 40-1 should Cousins be traded,” notes Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com.

There is no certainty this will happen though we are getting closer to that option following some obvious discontent Cousins is feeling towards his new head coach George Karl.

Lakers General manager Mitch Kupchak has said it would take a great offer to trade the number two pick in Thursday’s Draft.  Cousins more than lives up to that “great offer” status.  For Daily Fantasy players, his salary price rose all the way up to $10,500, scoring 45 or more Fantasy points on a bad day.

Greg Price of the International Business Times:

For the Lakers, the move makes a lot of sense. Rather than spend the second overall choice on a young and unproven big man like Duke’s Jahlil Okafor or a flashy guard like Emmanuel Mudiay, and wait for either to develop, the Lakers can make a big push in 2015-2016 with Cousins and a now healthy Kobe Bryant.

“With this in mind it might be the wise option to place a future bet on the Lakers to win the 2016 NBA Championship at 60-1 odds and lock that price in at a book like BetDSI.com that has been in business nearly 18 years now,” recommended Shapiro. 

Earlier in the day, NBC Sports reported that Julius Randle is in play as part of a potential trade along with the number 2 pick.
