​It seems like the ​NBA trade deadline gets more and more hectic each and every year, and this year was no exception. Contenders scour the trade block for opportunities to improve their rosters is preparation for the postseason, and the league's bottom feeders try to acquire future draft picks and unload salaries.


During the recent flurry of activity, the 76ers made arguably the biggest move of the day, acquiring Tobias Harris from the Los Angeles Clippers, a move that initially ​didn't change Philadelphia's betting odds to win the NBA title.


However, just a day later, the 76ers are the only team that's made any movement, according to FanDuel Sportsbook

Philadelphia went from +1600 to +1400 to win the NBA Championship, moving them into a tie with the ​East-leading Milwaukee Bucks.

Bear in mind, the 76ers' trade deadline moves come just a few months after the blockbuster trade that sent Jimmy Butler from Minnesota to Philly. Bulter's impact proved impactful, both on the court and in the odds, as the 76ers went from +2300 to +1600 to win it all, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, following that deal.

While many might argue that these moves have made Philly the team to beat in the East, the million dollar questions is: "Will this be enough to take down Golden State?"

Only time will tell, but Golden State remains the heavy favorite to win the NBA championship at -195, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
