Raptors trade Jermaine O'Neal, J.Moon to Heat for Shawn Marion, M.Banks
 
UPDATE: The trade is a DONE DEAL. http://www.insidehoops.com/marion-on...e-021309.shtml

The Toronto Raptors announced Friday they have acquired four-time NBA All-Star forward Shawn Marion, guard Marcus Banks and cash from the Miami Heat in exchange for forward-center Jermaine O’Neal, forward Jamario Moon and a conditional draft pick.


EARLIER:

Would the move slow down the transition game for Miami?
And does that even matter at this point?

Oneal will miss some games, but MIA may have enough depth to allow him some rest to survive the season intact.

It makes sense. Heat can use his 2 blocks pg and critical defensive rebound in the final secs.

Oneal's FG% pretty much matches up with Marion's.
Marion is an ok fit in Miami but the team needs help upfront. It craves a low post option.
This is undeniable.

But why would Toronto do it?
Marion rebounds at 9 pg but Heat are losing the interior game.

Now, I havent seen ONeal play much this year... is he playing as good as his numbers?
And how are those knees?

Who will guard LeBron if Miami makes this trade?

You should specify Jermain O'neal, hah.


Marion doesn't do anything for Toronto, and he's gone this summer.

J.O. could work in Miami, so I think MIA would make this move.

The J.O. and Bosh has worked well when they are both on the court, and I think Raptors should move pieces around them instead.

Im guessing its pure speculation, because the only time he even mentions 'rumor' is in the title...

Plus, Marion for JO would be talked about everywhere, if there was even a remote possibility to it...

Can't we just have a trade rumor forum and anything like this could go in that instead of in here:sleeping

Agreed. If ANY sub-forum should be added, it should be a trade idea/trade rumor forum. Not an NFL forum, not that stupid article forum, a trade idea forum.

thats stupid, they just got O'Neal and why would they trade him that quickly.
and yes the team suck, but it needs more time to decide the trade.

Toronto needs help on the wings, but I don't know if Marion is the answer. He's definitely an upgrade over Moon/Kapono at SF but the Raps really need someone who can create his own shot.

J.O. may not be the catalyst in the of the team, but he is certainly an aid to it..

If the Raptors make any trade before the deadline.. it will be specifically using, role players like Parker and Bargs..

So.... YOU made up this rumor? Is that you Bill Ingram?

Our SF's are Jamario Moon, Kapono and Joey G. :roll:

Getting Marion might as well be like getting Scottie Pip.

He may be gone this summer, but so is his $17,180,000 salary. Ding...ding...ding.

It's fair to say that something big will be happening with the Raptors before the trade deadline. It could be this week or next. Not specifically JO for Marion. But, just reading the blogs of local beat writers, the signs are there. More than likely it would involve those mentioned or our killa wings.

TO would love to have Marion.
A SF who can rebound, defend, and occasionally hit an open threee: magic. Bargs has been killing it at center the past five game he's had a chance to start, so with a defensive SF that can rebound backing him up he could be quite effective.

If only it were real.

Jermaine O'Neal for Shawn Marion would be an interesting move, if Miami could send out a bad contract like Mark Blount's deal and Miami gets a smaller expirer in return.

Also, Miami would want to extend O'Neal's deal, so that he gets less per year next season, but O'Neal gets a bigger deal down the line. Like what Miami did with Shaq. Shaq had 31 million due one year, but Miami gave him 69 million more, so he lowered his yearly salary and got a longer deal.

Re: RUMOR: Marion for J O'Neal
 
Marion might be a good trade for us, but he'd definitely leave when his contract expires so there's almost no point. Plus, i'm tired of all the rumors.. if what Colangelo said is true and none of our core players are available, then there's nothing of significance that's gonna happen before the trade deadline barring a miracle trade of JO for a star wing player.
