Pacific Division Odds for 2023-24 Season
Phoenix enters the season as the favorite to win the Pacific division. There are high expectations for the franchise as it has thoroughly overhauled its roster since last season’s trade deadline. Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, and Bradley Beal form a formidable three-headed monster on offense and recent acquisitions of veterans like Jusuf Nurkic and Eric Gordon provide some depth to the roster.
Right below Phoenix are the Lakers and Warriors, who will be trying to maintain their spots as top dogs in the Western Conference this year. The Warriors decided to keep their veteran core intact by re-signing Draymond Green and trading Jordan Poole in the offseason, a move that brought them back future Hall of Famer Chris Paul. Meanwhile, the LeBron James-led Lakers made several moves to bolster their depth in the offseason, acquiring the likes of Gabe Vincent and Christian Wood while re-signing important postseason pieces like Rui Hachimura and Austin Reaves.
The Clippers’ status as both a division and Western Conference contender will come down the ability of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and Russell Westbrook to stay healthy. Meanwhile, Sacramento was the surprise of the league last year and will look to push past the first round with its fast-paced offense.
