Books set odds on LeBron's 2014 free-agent home

Jul 3, 2013 |
Dwight Howard may be the Great White Whale of the 2013 NBA free-agent market but he’s a minnow compared to LeBron James and the possible free-agent derby in the summer of 2014.

James, who’s open for business following the 2013-14 NBA season, has told the media he isn’t thinking about possible 2014 destinations and is more concerned about winning a third straight championship with the Miami Heat.

That hasn’t stopped oddsmakers from setting prices on James’ next stop on his legendary NBA tour. While the Heat are -400 favorites to hang on to the King, LeBron’s former club, the Cleveland Cavaliers, are on the radar at +375.

Also among the notable contenders for James are the Los Angeles Lakers (+550), Chicago Bulls (+700), and Dallas Mavericks (+1,300).

Here’s the full list of possible destinations for King James and their odds:

Miami Heat -400
Cleveland Cavaliers +375
Los Angeles Lakers +550
Chicago Bulls +700
Dallas Mavericks +1,300
Los Angeles Clippers +4,900
New York Knicks +7,400
San Antonio Spurs +9,900
Boston Celtics +9,900
Brooklyn Nets +14,900
Oklahoma City Thunder +19,900
