Default Marion trade far from imminent, Pat Riley says

Quote:
A trade that would send forward Shawn Marion to Toronto for Jermaine O'Neal is far from imminent, Heat president Pat Riley said Sunday.

In his first comments since speculation of the potential deal intensified this weekend, Riley disputed published reports that he is waiting to see how well O'Neal's troublesome right knee holds up before deciding on a deal.

O'Neal missed Sunday's game in Toronto against the Suns to rest his knee. He had missed nine of the Raptors past 10 games with soreness. Coincidentally, Marion sat out of Sunday's game against the Thunder after tweaking his left groin in Saturday's loss against Houston.

''It is typical of this time of year in the NBA that people put the cart before the horse,'' Riley said through a team spokesman before Sunday's game against the Thunder. ``Whoever is saying that [a trade is imminent] is putting the cart before the horse.''

The Heat has had recent discussions with at least three teams regarding potential deals for Marion, who will earn $17.8 million on a contract that expires at the end of this season.

Informed of Riley's statement before the game, Marion said: ``That's good to hear, but I told you I'm not talking about it anymore. I'm done.''

Marion, who was having his most productive stretch of the season, said he injured his groin when he ''planted wrong'' in the second half Saturday at Houston. Marion, who has had problems with both groins this season, tried to work out Sunday before he decided he couldn't play.

With the Heat facing a three-game home stretch this week against Boston, Orlando and Atlanta, Marion said he didn't want to risk anything.

''I want to treat it, rest it and hopefully I'll be ready,'' Marion said. ``Those are some really big games for us.''

Banks has only played 15 games? Oh man the Heat are really unloading on us with this one. We should find a way to give 'em Kaps or something to even it out

Do GM's have no shame? Didn't their mothers teach them not to lie?
