The Orlando Magic's search for a new head coach is entering its final phase.

"We're not going to comment on the process and where it stands," Martins told the Orlando Sentinel on Saturday. Orlando Sentinel

If Jacque Vaughn is named Orlando coach, he would become the fifth active NBA coach to coach a team he once played for. The other four currently in place with that distinction: Philadelphia's Doug Collins, Utah's Tyrone Corbin, Milwaukee's Scott Skiles, New York's Mike Woodson. Sulia

The Spurs found out during Friday morning's shootaround there would be a coaching change for their game against the Miami Heat that night as Austin Toros assistant coach Taylor Jenkins would replace Jacque Vaughn as the team's leader. Though there's nothing official to report, word out of San Antonio camp is Vaughn was in discussions with Orlando Magic CEO Alex Martins on Friday and is perhaps the front-runner for the team's head coaching job.
