The deal is reportedly awaiting league approval.

O'Neal's past his prime, but his contract expires by 2010 and he forms a better duo (inside-out) with Wade than Marion. Toronto gets immediate cap relief and help on the perimeter, and Banks could be a solid backup point guard to Calderon. I think they should look to trade Bosh if he really wants out, tank the rest of the season, and they can start rebuilding in the offseason.
