Reports: O'Neal deal to Raptors not done yet 2008-06-27
The Toronto Raptors and Indiana Pacers have agreed to a blockbuster trade the day before the draft. Or so it seems.

Multiple media outlets reported that Jermaine O'Neal was dealt to the Raptors for point guard T.J. Ford, center Rasho Nesterovic and the No. 17 overall pick. The Pacers also have the No. 11 pick in the draft.

But Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo wouldn't confirm the deal to the Canadian Press, saying the team was in the middle of "four or five" potential deals.

The players still must pass physicals, which could be a major hurdle in the deal considering the injury history of Ford and O'Neal. A deal can't be finalized until July 1, when Ford's base-year compensation tag comes off the books

Ford became somewhat expendable after the emergence of backup Jose Calderon in Toronto. He played in 51 games with 26 starts for the Raptors, averaging 12.1 points and 6.1 assists.

O'Neal hasn't played in 70 or more games in a season since 2003. He averaged 13.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks during the '07-08 season, but he played in just 42 games.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
