[new_royalslider id=”293″]

With the San Antonio Spurs’ five-game domination of the Miami Heat complete, thoughts have already begun moving towards next season. There are still a number things to happen until that time, the NBA Draft and free agency chief among them. But that hasn’t stopped LVH SuperBook from releasing their odds for next season.

According to ESPN, the Lakers opened up at 50-1 before moving to even greater odds:

The only other odds adjustment the past week has been the Lakers raised from 50-1 to 60-1

The odds should come as no surprise. The Lakers finished with the sixth worst record in the NBA this past season and while they will be returning Kobe Bryant, it will take far more than that to move the Lakers into title contention.

The Lakers still haven’t named a new coach, but Byron Scott has emerged as a favorite. Although they have a lot of cap room, the Lakers are not expected to make a big splash unless they feel they have a chance to lure LeBron James to Los Angeles.
