The first deal of the National Basketball Association's 2009 offseason has been reportedly completed. According to Doug Smith, the Toronto Raptors have traded sharpshooter, Jason Kapono to the Philadelphia 76ers for Reggie Evans.

Hardly in the NBA do you see a trade which benefits both teams, but this one does. For the 76ers, they get what they lacked by acquiring a sharpshooter to spread the floor for Elton Brand, who is returning from his second major injury in back to back seasons.

On the flip side, the Raptors get some toughness up front, which they lacked with Chris Bosh and Andrea Bargnani. Evans has always been known for gobbling up every possible rebound.
