UPDATE: Toronto - Jermaine O'Neal is a Raptor

Huh ... looks like HoopsNation was so far off after all. Raps are apparently after Jermaine.

The talks are not the point where any deal is imminent and a deal is certainly not assured but the source said the Raptors are aggressively trying to move Ford and O’Neal is one of their targets.

Toronto also still has serious interest in forward Boris Diaw of the Phoenix Suns and is in talks with at least three other teams for trades of a similar magnitude.
