So you’re saying there’s a chance?

Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks are a single game away from elimination in their 2020 NBA Playoffs series against the Miami Heat. This was not the expected script when the best team in the regular season met...well...anyone. Rumors were already swirling about Antetokounmpo’s impending free agency in 2021, and whether his “lame duck” status next season would cause the Bucks to trade him for value instead of watching him walk away. Losing to Miami is intensifying the chatter.

Betting website has released odds on Antetokounmpo’s next destination and the Portland Trail Blazers have made the list, albeit faintly. The Blazers are tied for 13th on the 16-team list with the Chicago Bulls and Utah Jazz with 20-1 odds of landing the presumptive multi-time MVP. The Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors head the list with 3-1 and 4-1 odds, respectively.

Here’s the entire rundown:

Heat +300 (3/1)

Raptors +400 (4/1)

Pelicans +500 (5/1)

Knicks +500 (5/1)

76ers +500 (5/1)

Celtics +800 (8/1)

Clippers +800 (8/1)

Mavericks +1000 (10/1)

Lakers +1000 (10/1)

Pacers +1200 (12/1)

Rockets +1200 (12/1)

Warriors +1200 (12/1)

Bulls +2000 (20/1)

Jazz +2000 (20/1)

Trail Blazers +2000 (20/1)

Nets +2500 (25/1)

Cue the “So you’re saying there’s a chance?” memes.
