The Toronto Raptors keep shooting up Vegas odds as one of the league's most likely teams to land Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant.

At one point earlier this past week Toronto was sitting fifth at +700 to land Durant, but the Raptors have suddenly jumped to +400 and the second-highest best odds to acquire the all-world forward, according to DraftKings.

The Phoenix Suns still remain the heavy favorites at -165, conveying about a 62% chance Durant lands in Phoenix. The Suns are reportedly one of Durant's preferred destinations and a package involving Deandre Ayton and Mikal Bridges may be enough to entice the Nets into a deal.

Vegas believes the Suns and Raptors are the only teams more likely to acquire Durant than for him to remain with the Nets next season. Brooklyn sits at +850 to retain its superstar scorer through the summer. Miami and Chicago sit at +950 and +1000, respectively, conveying about a 10% chance the Heat or Bulls pull off a deal.
