About a third of the NBA teams found their future odds to win the 2002 Championship influenced by Wednesday night’s draft.

Oddsmaker Las Vegas Sports Consultants adjusted downward the following NBA teams: Orlando (12-1 from 15-1); Minnesota (18-1 from 20-1); Houston (40-1 from 50-1); Boston (60-1 from 75-1); New Jersey (75-1 from 100-1); L.A. Clippers (75-1 from 120-1); Atlanta (120-1 from 250-1); and Vancouver (250-1 from 350-1).

Only one’s team saw its odds to win the NBA Championship increase: Chicago went from 300-1 to 350-1.
