Rob Hennigan Rumors
“We really wanted to find a coach who embodies the type of culture and identity that we’re trying to build here in Orlando,” said Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan. “We feel that [his] toughness, humility and attention to detail personifies the types of values that will help define our program. We were just really impressed throughout the interview process with his presence and his intellect and his passion for preparation.”
On Tuesday, he traveled to the U.S. for just the second time in his life. He’s eager to see more of his new home city, Orlando — so eager that he has peppered Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan with questions about Central Florida. “I think it’s a completely other world here, everything positive,” Hezonja said during an introductory press conference Thursday afternoon for him and second-round pick Tyler Harvey.
“Scott (Skiles) clearly distinguished himself as a tremendous fit,” said Hennigan. “Our young roster will benefit greatly from Scott’s extensive head coaching experience and commitment to teaching smart, physical, unselfish basketball. We believe in Scott’s ability to establish a culture of winning habits and accountability that will help guide our team in a positive direction.”
