Latest Odds Have Lakers as 3rd Most-Likely Spot for James Harden

After another ringless postseason, James Harden will become an unrestricted free agency. Would he consider joining the Los Angeles Lakers for the next leg of his championship run?

According to the most recent BetOnline odds, LeBron James and company are the third-most likely landing location for the former MVP, with odds of 6-to-1.Only the Phoenix Suns and Orlando Magic have better odds: 4-to-1 and 5-to-1, respectively.

Harden averaged 16.6 points, 8.5 assists, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.1 steals in 72 starts for the Los Angeles Clippers this season.

However, he and the Clippers both struggled in the playoffs. The Dallas Mavericks eliminated them after six games.

Harden scored only 23 points on 7-of-28 shooting from the field and 1-of-13 from three in Games 5 and 6, both losses.

It wouldn't be surprising if both parties moved on this summer, but early reports indicate he's a priority for the Clippers.

Sam Amick, an insider for The Athletic, described the LA Clippers' forthcoming summer in a story published on May 3.

Among the many issues on their schedule are upcoming contract negotiations with Harden.
