Bovada Offering NBA Trade Deadline Props

Bovada Offering NBA Trade Deadline Props
The NBA trading deadline is Thursday afternoon and there will be some action, if not a blockbuster. Bovada is offering props on some fairly big-name players who could change teams.

The NBA’s trade deadline is Thursday afternoon and there might not be a ton of action because many contenders already have made their big moves this season. For example, Dallas acquired Rajon Rondo from Boston, Memphis got Jeff Green from the Celtics, and Cleveland added Timofey Mozgov from Denver and J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert from New York.

But you know there will be some action. Bovada has some interesting props.

Player Trade Props

Will the Nets trade center Brook Lopez by the deadline? Yes is a +125 underdog and no a -175 favorites. The Nets passed on offers got for Lopez when he was on the market last month, but the deadline may change things. In addition, Lopez and fellow center Mason Plumlee simply can’t coexist. Brooklyn has been outscored by 17.7 points per 100 possessions in the 293 minutes Lopez and Plumlee have played together. The Thunder have long been rumored a landing spot. If they added Reggie Jackson to the trade, would that tempt the Nets?

Will the Nuggets trade Arron Afflalo? Yes is a  -250 favorite and no +175. Denver is a major seller ahead of the deadline and would certainly deal Wilson Chandler. Ty Lawson and Kenneth Faried would be tougher to get but not impossible. It’s Afflalo who is drawing the most interest around the league. Portland, the Clippers and Thunder are considered leading contenders. OKC which starts Andre Roberson at shooting guard and could use Afflalo either in that spot or as an additional scorer off the bench.

The Clippers have gauged the market with Jamal Crawford to see if there’s a way to acquire a first-round pick that could help them make a competitive offer to Denver for Wilson Chandler or Afflalo. The Clippers need a wing player so badly they also have been looking at Charlotte’s Lance Stephenson in recent weeks.

Portland has shown a stronger desire to make a deal with Denver for Chandler than Afflalo, partly because Chandler is under contract next season. The Blazers have made Will Barton and Thomas Robinson, as well as a future first-rounder.

Will the Jazz trade Enes Kanter? No is -230 and yes +160. Kanter wants to be dealt but Utah is apparently asking too much for the young Turkish big man who still has a lot of upside. Kanter will be a restricted free agent this summer, which may further limit the offers teams come up with to try to trade for him sooner. Toronto might be the best fit. Kanter would be an upgrade over Tyler Hansbrough off the bench, which might be enough to get the Raptors to part with a first-round pick.

Lakers Prop

Will the Lakers make any trade by Thursday? Yes is a -175 favorite and no at +125. Would L.A. like to make a deal? Absolutely. They just don’t have much of anything other teams want. Suns guard Goran Dragic has the Lakers among the teams he would re-sign with if dealt there, but Phoenix doesn’t have anything that would entice Phoenix. Jordan Hill certainly isn’t going to cut it. Gorac, the reigning Most Improved Player has asked the Suns for a trade and reportedly lists the Lakers, as well as Miami and New York, as his preferred destinations.

Hill’s contract carries a team option for next season, so he could be a cheap rental for a team looking to add frontcourt depth before the playoffs. The question for the Lakers is whether they would be willing to part with the assets – such as draft picks, or a young player like Jordan Clarkson – to make a deal now.
