NBA Odds: Shumpert and Smith Offer Cavs Boundary Support
The Cleveland Cavaliers have made waves with a choice to oust shooting guard Dion Waiters from town. The trade is a three-team offer that will bring Cleveland Iman Shumpert and JR Smith. The Cleveland Cavaliers Odds for the NBA Championship have been moving accordingly, no doubt due to the fact that LeBron James is out with an injury.
Simply put, the deal offers the Cavs a well established boundary protector and a boom-or-bust three-point shooter. Thinking about that it only cost Waitress, a frustrating high draft choice, and Lou Amundsen and Alex Kirk, the step might pay dividends.
Smith hasn't matched the 18.1 points per game he achieved in the 2012-2013 period, but he's an explosive wing gamer and can put points on the board off the bench or as a starter.
Having obviously accepted the offer to obtain Smith, a colleague who features his own luggage, James will certainly take solace in that his franchise is cleaning out a few of the stopgap options they were required to put in location when he initially left for Miami.
Waitress clashed with point player Kyrie Irving and ended up being defunct when James and Kevin Love signed up with, so now that he's out of the picture there's more space on the court for the remainder of the team. The Cavaliers odds to collect the championship have actually dropped to 6/1.[wpsm_video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hp7NfhmGfA[/wpsm_video]
