It comes as no surprise that the addition of Kevin Durant has improved the Warriors’ odds of winning the NBA championship.

Golden State is now a 4-5 choice to reclaim the title it lost to Cleveland last month, according to VegasInsider.com. The Warriors were a 3-1 favorite before the free agent Durant announced Monday he would sign with Golden State.

NBA champion Cleveland is next at 4-1, followed by San Antonio at 15-1.

The Pistons are at 100-1. The Nets have the longest odds at 1,000-1.
