The Toronto Raptors attempts to deal disgruntled point guard T.J. Ford has gone from Phoenix to Indiana.

According to a report in the Indianapolis Star, the Raptors and Indiana Pacers have discussed a deal that would send power forward/centre Jermaine O'Neal to Toronto in exchange for Ford, centre Rasho Nesterovic and one other player to make the deal work under the NBA's salary cap.

Toronto's first round pick (17th overall) at Thursday's NBA Draft is also believed to be in play.

Over the weekend, reports surfaced that the Raptors were talking to the Phoenix Suns about a Ford trade that would have sent Boris Diaw to Toronto.

O'Neal played in only 42 games for the Pacers last season and was slowed by a knee injury.  The six-time all-star averaged 13.6 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.
