Phoenix Picking Up Shaquille O’Neal For Sure

ESPN reported early Wednesday that the Heat has agreed to trade Shaquille O’Neal, the superstar center who arrived at the Miami Heat’s doorstep in a diesel truck and then helped drive the team to an NBA championship, to the Phoenix Suns pending O’Neal passing a physical exam in Phoenix on Wednesday. The Heat is expected to receive forward Shawn Marion and guard Marcus Banks in exchange for O’Neal. ESPN’s report followed a Miami Herald report that the Heat had informed O’Neal that a trade to Phoenix was a strong possibility. Click here for more from the Miami Herald.
