I think O'neal should help out the Heat quite well. Marion wasn't working out and they have Beasley and now Moon to play the SF/PF position anyways. They really needed a big man. I think the heat got better in this trade. Be interesting to see how Marion works out for Toronto. See if Calderon can bring out the "better" player in him as Nash did.

well, with a starting lineup of mario chalmers, d wade, jamario moon, michael beasly, and jermaine oneal, this is a pretty dangerous team if healthy. and they got dequan cook alongside with haslem coming off the bench. ( iknow beasly comes off teh bench, but i put him in starting lineups cause iwanted to see their best offensive lineup.

itll be interesting to see what they do with beasley now. also, i dont keep up with raptors basketball too much, but is o'neal that big of a difference maker still for any team?

^^^ Agreed, it's a win-win. Plus, the Raptors wanted the cap space sooner than later.

it would be good for the raps if they re-sign marion at a much lower price. maybe like 7 mil? 6 mil?

and about oneal, i don't know. the guys' damaged goods and he hasn't proved much to me in his first games with the heat.
