There has been a lot of buzz among basketball fans following the recent trade between the Golden State Warriors and the Washington Wizards. The trade involved Chris Paul moving to Golden State while Jordan Poole and future picks were sent to the Wizards. As a result, many are now speculating on how this deal will affect the Warriors’ chances of making it to the NBA Finals in 2024.
According to FanDuel, the Golden State Warriors are among the top contenders for the 2024 NBA Finals. Their odds of reaching the finals stand at +1200, which is the fifth highest in the league. The Phoenix Suns, Milwaukee Bucks, Denver Nuggets, and Boston Celtics are the only teams with higher odds than the Warriors. However, despite this ranking, Golden State still has the third best odds in the Western Conference.
Although he may not be the player he once was, Chris Paul remains a trustworthy point guard who can lead his team to victory. His exceptional passing and ball-handling skills enable him to locate open teammates, while also contributing a respectable amount of points. Furthermore, Paul is diligent when defending on the court.
