One of the potential Kings deals to be had before the Feb. 19 deadline is apparently off the table.
I was just told by a rock-solid league source that Miami's Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks are headed to Toronto for Jermaine O'Neal, Jamario Moon and a future first-round pick. The Kings had discussed a Marion deal for some time, with the one apparent holdup that they didn't want to take back Banks. Now to be clear, there was also always a sense that the Heat had the Kings on the backburner while hoping to do something bigger than Brad Miller and Kenny Thomas. - Sam Amick
