"Overall, I love the city," Frye said. "I love this opportunity to play with these guys. After the [coaching] change, I think it's really for me, in my personal opinion, been a breath of fresh air with J.B. I'm not saying that it wasn't awesome before. But I'm just saying the way his philosophy is a little different, it's a little bit more my style. For me, I've just tried to do the best I can every day, and it's been a learning process. I kind of know I'm not the fan favorite right now. But I think that, for me, I'm just trying to do everything I can to help the team both on and off the court and help us get wins." Orlando Sentinel

Orlando will begin a national coaching search and, according to sources, plans to cast a wide net. Scott Skiles, the former Magic guard, is a leading candidate. Mark Jackson, Mike Malone and Vinny Del Negro figure to eventually be on the interview list.

Magic officials have turned the team over to an interim coach, 37-year-old James Borrego, who had been the lead assistant coach under Vaughn but has never coached a full regular-season NBA game. "We went into the season wanting to see some progress," Hennigan said. "We wanted to see growth, and we just didn't feel like we were seeing the type of growth that we wanted to see. So that led us to this point. I would say that we find ourselves in a little bit of a rut right now. We'll call it what it is. But I would also say that it's a road bump, not a road block."
