Default 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?
