good trade for Toronto...

J.O and Bosh... those boys are going to be a sick tandem...

It was also a good trade for Indiana. They were willing to give him away, but they were able to get a good point in Ford and a draft pick.

Good trade both ways.

Damn, one injury prone/possibly finished player..............traded for the exact same thing.

If JO can return to any kind of form of old, then Toronto have a great deal, as they have a decent PG in Calderon, so havnt really lost anything.

However, if he cant.............then they are stuck with one hell of a bloated and unfortunate contract.

Only time will tell on this one.

Yeah. He still has two years. I would be worried about those knees.

Toronto is very weak at the guard spot now. If they dont go out there and get a couple guys in free agency, they could be hurting pretty bad.

I think both teams made out pretty well in this...although half the battle will be which one will get hurt first?

This Jermaine's last chance to go for a championship and he and Bosh can tear the East. Calderon has the PG reins now and he is the player that could either make it all work or fall apart if he does get injured
