Reports: O'Neal Traded To Toronto

Last updated on Thursday, June 26, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The trade that would send Indiana Pacers forward Jermaine O’Neal to the Toronto Raptors is reportedly a done deal.

While the Pacers have not confirmed the deal, several sources say that there is an agreement in principle to send the six-time all-star to the Raptors in exchange for point guard TJ Ford, center Rasho Nesterovic, one unnamed player and the rights to the number-17 pick in tonight's NBA Draft.

Some reports say that Maceo Baston will be the player to be named, returning to Indiana where he played during the 2006-2007 season. There are also reports that the Pacers will send their second round pick - number 41 overall - to Toronto.

Due to Ford's contract, the deal cannot be finalized until July 1st.
