Swapping Jermaine O’Neal for TJ Ford, Rasho Nesterovic’s expiring deal, and a Toronto draft pick seems like a reasonable move for Indiana and an excellent pickup for the Raptors. Toronto was overstocked with Ford and Calderon at the point so even though Ford’s a good player they’re not, in practice, giving very much up. And O’Neal should help add some frontcourt toughness and defense and create a situation where they don’t feel compelled to give many minutes to Bargnani.
