2024/25 NBA Championship Odds: Philadelphia 76ers +800 after signing Paul George

The Philadelphia 76ers have the third-shortest odds to win the 2024/25 NBA Championship after signing nine-time All-Star Paul George.

Philly is +800 to win the title in 2024/25, and the only teams with shorter odds are the last two title winners - the Boston Celtics at +300 and the Denver Nuggets at +750.

Before signing George, the Sixers had +1400 odds to win the title in 2024/25. The 34-year-old wing averaged 22.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.5 steals while shooting 41.3 percent from three in 33.8 minutes per game with the Los Angeles Clippers last season.

George played 74 games in 2023/24, the most he played in a season since 2018/19. His contract with the 76ers is a four-year, $212 million max deal that will keep him in Philly until his late 30s.

PG joins Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey in the Sixers' core of stars. Philly entered the offseason with three players under contract - Embiid, Paul Reed and Ricky Council IV - but the roster is quickly taking shape amid free agency.

Sixers general manager Darryl Morey re-signed Maxey, who made his first All-Star appearance in 2023, as well as wing Kelly Oubre Jr. Center Andre Drummond and guard Eric Gordon were added in free agency, while guard Jared McCain and center Adem Bona were selected by the Sixers in the draft.

No matter how the team lines up, Embiid and Maxey will be grateful to have a consistent, All-Star-caliber scorer on the wing. The question is how the players will fare in the playoffs.

George has played in two Conference Finals series, but his team lost both times. Embiid and Maxey have never made it past the second round of the playoffs.

Morey and Sixers coach Nick Nurse will hope the three stars - and their supporting cast - complement each other well enough to get Philly their first championship since 1983.
