With the 2022 NBA Finals behind us, and Golden State crowned victors yet again, what do NBA fans must sit up for now? In the event you’re into sports betting, it’s time to place some money down. Odds are already up for next season, and we’re specializing in the Brooklyn Nets’ 2023 NBA Championship Odds.
The Nets are the very best likelihood for Recent Yorkers to bring an NBA championship home in 2023. (Sorry, Knicks fans, we would like higher for you, too.)
Not way back, the Nets appear to have all of the ingredients but didn’t nail the recipe to win all of it. They entered the 2021-2022 season as betting favorites, with the intimidating lineup of Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving. However the season was riddled with injuries and vaccination drama, leading Harden to peace out for the 76ers mid-season.
This drama resulted in a disappointing run, with a regular-season record of 44-38. They squeaked into the primary round of the playoffs but were shut out in the primary round by Boston.
But all of that’s previously.
Unfortunately, a future with a healthy Durant, Irving, and Ben Simmons not seems likely now that Durant has requested a trade twice in lower than two months.
Brooklyn Nets Odds to Win 2023 NBA Championship
The Nets opened in the highest five betting favorites for the 2023 NBA Championship and have fallen out of that top list since Durant asked for a trade. The range for the highest five is pretty broad, with some NY sportsbooks pricing them inside 50 cents and others giving more competitive odds for the lower teams.
Here’s the total lineup of best odds to win the 2023 NBA Championship.

Brooklyn Nets Odds to Win Eastern Conference

What Will the Nets do with the Off-Season?
After getting knocked out of the playoffs in only 4 games, the Nets face quite a lot of scrutiny over their off-season moves.
Durant’s trade request throws a serious wrench into Brooklyn’s offseason plans. And what concerning the other superstars on the team — Kyrie Irving, Ben Simmons, LaMarcus Aldridge, Blake Griffin?
Irving has a player option that may allow him to enter free agency. Thus far, though, he’s said he doesn’t plan on going anywhere. If Irving stays with the Nets, he’s eligible for a five-year $247.7 million contract or a four-year $189.9 million extension. That’s higher than he can get with another team within the league.
With the lack of Harden, Brooklyn management seems focused on continuing to construct a team around Durant and Irving. At this point, we expect Simmons to remain on, too.
The massive query is how much Irving’s contract will probably be and the way much Brooklyn is willing to spend within the free agency and trade market. Griffin, Aldridge, Andre Drummond, Goran Dragic, Bruce Brown, and Nicolas Claxton are all free agency. The Nets even have several trade exceptions that would usher in a pair of latest players.
We don’t know what Brooklyn will ultimately resolve, but we’re looking forward to the ride.
