The Denver Nuggets are just a few weeks removed from winning their first NBA championship, but teams have since turned their attention to next season.

Quickly after the Nuggets' Game 5 victory over the Miami Heat, the offseason transaction cycle went into full swing. The 2023 NBA Draft shook up the young talent in the league, followed by an active free agent period filled with player movement.

There are still plenty of unsigned free agents, but basketball fans are eagerly awaiting the start of the next NBA season.

Who will be the next team to win it all? Here is what the oddsmakers have to say after the major free agent moves:
