Jermaine O'Neal's daughter, who is 13 years old, will have heart surgery on March 5, and O'Neal is not currently thinking about Thursday's trade deadline.
Our thoughts and prayers to O'Neal, his daughter and his family during an understandably difficult time. O'Neal has had heart issues of his own this season, and now he'll focus on his daughter's health. "For me, it's one thing after another. I haven't even had a chance to think about that (trade possibilities). If they want me to do something to help the team, I'm for it." The Arizona Republic speculates that the Mavericks or Thunder could be interested in him.
