Oklahoma City Thunder player reportedly on trade block

Josh Giddey had been viewed as one of the best young point guards in the NBA heading into the 2023-24 season.

He had a productive year with averages of 12.3 points, 6.4 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game while shooting 47.5% from the field and 33.7% from three-point range in 80 games.

However, he was left out of the rotation during the second round of the NBA playoffs.

Speculation has begun regarding its commercial availability this summer.

Via Evan Sidery of Forbes on May 20: “The Thunder are widely expected to purchase Josh Giddey in trade negotiations this offseason, who is now eligible for an extension.

OKC will likely look to trade Giddey along with some of its 13 future first-round picks to secure an impact player who better fits the rotation.”

Recently, bovada revealed the odds for Giddey’s next team if he is moved.

Via NBACentral: “The Washington Wizards are the favorites to win the Josh Giddey sweepstakes, according to @BovadaOfficial

Wizards of Washington +450
Utah Jazz +500
New York Knicks +500
New Orleans Pelicans +600
Magical Orlando +700
Detroit Pistons +700
Miami heat +800
Phoenix Suns +1000
Los Angeles Lakers +1600
Toronto Raptors +1600
San Antonio Spurs +1800
Portland Pioneers +2200

The Thunder finished as the first seed in the Western Conference with a record of 57-25.

They made the NBA playoffs for the first time since 2020 and swept the New Orleans Pelicans in the first round.

However, they lost to Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks in the second round (in six games).

Giddey has played three seasons (all with the Thunder).
