Portland Trail Blazers NBA Championship Odds 2023-24

The current Portland Trail Blazers NBA championship odds are . Portland’s championship odds should be quite volatile until it decides what to do with Damian Lillard. Currently, the Blazers are fielding offers for Lillard but have not taken any very seriously, especially from the Miami Heat, who seem unwilling to “sell the house” for him. Until Lillard’s fate is decided, the Blazers’ future will appear murky; however, they seem to be leaning towards a relative rebuild, even though they signed Jerami Grant to a large five-year contract.

Portland finally bought into the rebuild after a few years of twidling its thumbs, but it is still in the middle of a tricky situation: Damian Lillard wants out, and it will likely only get back pennies on the dollar in return for him, despite his superstar status. The Blazers will have to make a decision in the coming weeks on whether or not they’re willing to hold on to Lillard if they don’t receive a favorable trade offer. For now, the Blazers will rely on their young core of Scoot Henderson, Shaedon Sharpe, and Anfernee Simons to lead the way.

Reasons Why Portland Trail Blazers Can & Can’t Win NBA 2023-24 Championship 


  • Youth/High-Upside Backcourt: While Portland could decide to make a huge move before the start of the season, it is unlikely to include Scoot Henderson, Shaedon Sharpe, or Anfernee Simons. Henderson, Sharpe, and Simons make up arguably the most athletic backcourt in the NBA, with each boasting the ability to fly high in the air for game-breaking dunks. Further, each of the aforementioned players is adept at creating their own shot, while Henderson should also be able to create for others at a high level on Day 1 of his rookie season. The future of this team is in great hands between those three guards.
  • Three-Point Shooting: Even without Damian Lillard, the Portland Trail Blazers still have an assortment of capable three-point shooters, including Simons, Sharpe, and Grant. Portland finished shooting just below 37% from deep as a team (11th) on the ninth-most 3PAs in the NBA. Lillard shot just above the team’s average with a substantial volume, so his absence will hurt quite a bit, but Grant shot 40%, Simons shot 38%, and Sharpe shot 36% (38% in his final 10 games on increased volume.) Three-point shooting could still be a relative strength for Portland.


  • Defense/Rebounding: Defense has not been a strong suit for the Portland Trail Blazers in the recent past; it has ranked towards the bottom in most key defensive statistical categories during most of Damian Lillard’s career. Losing Lillard is not going to help either, as the Blazers simply have never surrounded him with the proper personnel. Last season, Portland ranked 28th in defensive rating, 29th in opponent 3P%, 27th in opponent eFG%, 25th in opponent points in the paint, and 25th in defensive rebounding percentage. Matisse Thybulle and Jerami Grant will have moments where they help this defense but, ultimately, there won’t be enough improvement to move Portland out of the “weakness” category.
  • Depth: If Lillard is moved before the start of the 2023-24 regular season, then this weakness should subside to some degree. Currently, the Blazers have Nassir Little, Keon Johnson, Kris Murray, and Matisse Thybulle backing up the starters, which is nowhere near enough talent to keep up with above-average bench units. Portland’s bench unit ranked 28th in net rating last season and we should see a similar result in 2023-24.
