NBA Free Agency is wrapping up and the major action of the 2022 offseason is most likely behind us. The 2022-2023 NBA Finals odds have started to take shape as the dust settles on the offseason moves, and the Boston Celtics lead the way as favorites heading into the preseason. The Celtics major offseason move to this point has been the addition of Malcolm Brogdon, and it’ll add more depth to a roster than almost won the NBA Finals last season. Following the Celtics in the championship odds are a handful of teams who made deep playoff runs last year, including the reigning champion Golden State Warriors, but the one exception is the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers were eliminated in the play-in tournament in the 2021-2022 season but the return of Kawhi Leonard is expected to bring them to the championship contending tier.
