O'Neal appeared in only 42 games last season after suffering a knee injury. He was a first-round pick of Portland's 12 years ago and has a career average of 14.4 points per game.

Ford suffered a spinal cord contusion and played in just 51 games during the 2007-08 campaign.

Nesterovic is a former first-round draft pick (17th overall in the 1998 draft) of the Minnesota Timberwolves. He spent four years in Minnesota before going to the San Antonio Spurs, who dealt him to Toronto in 2006. He averaged 7.8 points and 4.8 rebounds last season, close to his career averages.
