Shawn Marion: Headed North of the Border

Posted on February 13, 2009 at 10:03 AM


Marion and Marcus Banks have been traded to the Raptors for Jermaine O'Neal and Jamario Moon, ESPN's Ric Bucher reports.


Although his scoring has steadily declined in each of the last four seasons (down to 12.0 ppg with the Heat this season), Marion is still a productive option across the board, averaging 8.7 boards and over a block and a steal per game this season. Moving back into a quick tempo offense in Toronto should help boost his scoring numbers and overall production as he'll get the ball more in transition and won't be forced to create his own shot like he was in Miami. Try working a trade for him on the cheap if you can pry him away from his owner in your league.
