This is the MOST DiSRESPECTFUL play you’ll see all summer!— Brad Ballislife (@BradBallisLife) August 8, 2022
Murray is listed as the favorite at -200 while Banchero comes in at +160. That’s an interesting opening line, considering Murray will be the secondary scoring option on his team behind Trae Young while Banchero is likely going to be given the keys to Orlando’s offense. Taking the Magic rookie at plus money could be the right play for now, especially given how he performed in Summer League.
Murray will need some time adjusting to playing with Young, so that could slow down his pace at the beginning of the season. We’ll see if these two guys keep going after each other as the season moves along.
