According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Heat remain a 2/1 favorite to win the 2014 NBA title. The Thunder, meanwhile, have the next best odds at 11/2 and the Clippers and Nets are both 10/1, respectively. The Bulls and Spurs also share the same 11/1 odds, respectively.

On Thursday night, the Celtics traded Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to the Nets in exchange for Gerald Wallace, Reggie Evans and Kris Humphries, as well as Keith Bogans in a sign-and-trade deal. Humphries will reportedly be traded to the Celtics as part of the draft night trade.

“Even though the draft did not really produce anything worthy of adjusting our Championship odds, the trade between the Celtics and Nets definitely did have an impact," said Kevin Bradley, Sportsbook Manager at Bovada.lv.

"The Nets, who we had at 40-1 yesterday, have been cut down all the way to 10-1 and are now the second favorite behind the Heat in the East. Meanwhile, the Celtics losing their coach and two future Hall of Famers are up to 75-1, which is the highest pre-season odds they have been since I can remember.”
