Durant boasts second best odds to capture 2017-18 MVP award

The 2017-18 NBA season doesn't officially start until Oct. 17, but it's never too early to look at the MVP odds.

Russell Westbrook -- who won the award last year -- is the leader in the clubhouse (7/2), according to Bovada.

Kevin Durant -- the 2017 NBA Finals MVP -- is right on his heels with 9/2 odds.

Kawhi Leonard (13/2), LeBron James (15/2) and James Harden (8/1) round out the Top 5.

Ummmmm, Steph Curry?

Klay Thompson was not listed.

Last year, Curry finished in sixth place in the MVP voting -- three third-place votes, one fourth-place vote and 34 fifth-place votes.

Durant received two fifth-place votes.

Report: Warriors sign former Pacers forward

The Warriors reportedly added a player on Wednesday morning.

Golden State signed Georges Niang to a partially guaranteed contract, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Warriors already have 15 players with fully guaranteed contracts for next season.

It's possible that Niang ends up signing a two-way contract and spend the majority of the season in Santa Cruz.

Former Oregon big man Chris Boucher inked a two-way deal with the Warriors back in mid-July.

The Pacers selected Niang in the second round (50th overall) of the 2016 draft.

Last year, the power forward appeared in 23 games for Indiana.

He also played in six contests with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants -- averaging 19 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists.

The Pacers waived Niang last month.

As a senior at Iowa State, he averaged 20.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists, while shooting 39 percent from deep.
