DeMar DeRozan next team odds: Los Angeles Lakers favored

Six-time NBA All-Star DeMar DeRozan might have played his last game for the Chicago Bulls. 

If that is the case, where might he land next?

According to the odds, it’s likely that he’s heading West.

At +250, the Los Angeles Lakers currently have the shortest odds to be the team for which the veteran plays his next regular-season minute. 

Speaking of the Lakers, the Purple & Gold were also at the forefront of the conversation to snag former Golden State star Klay Thompson during free agency. However, Thompson — whose father Mychal Thompson played for the Lakers — ended up signing a three-year, $50 million deal with Dallas.

Though L.A. didn’t land Thompson, the Lakers did draft Bronny James 55th in the 2024 NBA Draft and signed him to a fully-guaranteed contract. 

Then, on Wednesday, LeBron James signed an extension with the team. 

Other than that, the organization hasn’t made much noise in free agency.

Let’s dive into the odds at DraftKings Sportsbook for DeRozan’s next squad.


Lakers: +250 (bet $10 to win $35 total)
Heat: +400 (bet $10 to win $50 total)
Clippers: +400 (bet $10 to win $50 total)
Rockets: +1000 (bet $10 to win $110 total)
Pistons: +1000 (bet $10 to win $110 total)
Kings: +1600 (bet $10 to win $170 total)
Spurs: +1600 (bet $10 to win $170 total)
Suns: +2000 (bet $10 to win $210 total)
Magic: +2000 (bet $10 to win $210 total)
