Jermaine O'Neal traded to Heat for Shawn Marion

ESPN's Ric Bucher is reporting that the Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors have agreed to a four player trade that will send Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks to the Raptors for Jermaine O'Neal and Jamario Moon.

Marion didn't fit in as well in Miami as Pat Riley would have hoped and Jermaine O'Neal, when healthy, will give the Heat a low-post presence that they strongly need. "The Matrix" will be a better fit in Toronto's up-tempo system than O'Neal and the Raps get some insurance for Jose Calderon in Banks.
