Shawn Marion + Marcus Banks to the Raptors and Jermaine O'Neal + Jamario Moon to the Heat.

The Heat get much better. The Raptors get a big expirer...

This trade has been in the works for the last month. One of the worst kept secrets of the league this year.

Yeah, the Heat get the big man they wanted and the Raptors get the expirer. Good trade. The only bad thing about this trade is if O'Neal can't stay healthy for the Heat. Because if he goes down, it'll be tough to recover while he's out.

Well, I also consider Moon as a big improvement over what they had. He can start right away for them, and play dirty role like Bowen has done for San Antonio the last few years.

I mean, the trade is basically Marion for JO, with Moon and Banks to make it work. Well, then Miami gets two useful players for just one. It's a BIG deal for them... if JO stays healthy, of course.

yeah, this trade was one of those perfect "WHY DID IT TAKE THIS LONG?" scenarios. Good trade for both teams, as long as O'Neill is healthy.

Wow, nice trade for both teams.

Raptors really are sold or Bargnani again arent they? or maybe Bosh to C and Marion at PF.

Miami gets a HELL of alot better if O'Neal can hold up.............should enable Beasley to come along easier and Moon can do some good stuff for them.

Calderon just got booted out of the starting PG and the Raps are in championship contention, with Marcus Banks, The Mighty Champ, arriving

Wasn't Jermaine O'Neal already a huge expirer?
