Words that should Leave Sports Lexicon: Consummate

Consummate: The Kings and Pacers finally consummated their trade of Peja Stojakovic and Ron Artest.

This was used on a sports update on the radio. The word, while technically a correct use, paints an unnecessary picture. Does anyone really want to associate Peja, Larry Bird and consummating in the same image?
