Jermaine O'Neal trade scenarios
NBA insiders list the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat as teams with playoff aspirations that could use Jermaine O'Neal's interior presence. He was averaging 15.3 points a game and 5.9 rebounds on 52.2 per cent shooting in just 29 minutes of court time in December before getting hurt. Insiders have speculated the Bulls may be able to cobble together a collection of young players. The Heat are said to be interested in trading Shawn Marion. The versatile small forward was a favorite of Bryan Colangelo's when they were together in Phoenix. Marion is in the final season of a deal paying him $17.9-million (U.S.) this year and has struggled to find his offense alongside Dwyane Wade.
