The Toronto Raptors have agreed in principle to acquire forward Jermaine O'Neal from the Indiana Pacers for point guard T.J. Ford, center Rasho Nesterovic, the 17th pick in the draft and a player to be named, Yahoo reported Wednesday.
While Yahool reported the deal, citing an unidentified NBA executive, Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo told The Canadian Press that he was in the midst of ``four or five'' conversations with teams involving Ford and a combination of Toronto's No. 17 pick and/or other Raptors players.
A deal can't be finalized until July 1, when Ford's base-year compensation tag comes off the books, and Yahoo said O'Neal and Ford must still pass physicals.
O'Neal is a six-time All-Star. He averaged 13.6 points and 6.7 rebounds in 42 games last season.
