Action is hot and heavy in the NBA before today’s trade deadline and after The Brooklyn Nets traded away Kyrie Irving and the Los Angeles Lakers trade away Russell Westbrook, the Phoenix Suns and Brooklyn Nets stole the headlines by making a blockbuster trade sending superstar Kevin Durant to the desert. After adding Durant, Phoenix now has the second most favorable odds to win it all, behind only Boston.

Dan Patrick: “If you’re going to make this move and you don’t give up DeAndre Ayton, now I know there’s been friction with Monty Williams and DeAndre Ayton but you didn’t give up your big man. (Devin) Booker’s back. You’ve got a team; the team to beat right now it looks like, certainly in the West.”
