Rob Hennigan Rumors
“While we were conducting our search, it became very evident that Frank (Vogel) is a terrific fit for our organization,” said Hennigan. “He is a strong, hard-working and experienced leader, who will continue to instill smart, physical, unselfish and defensive-minded basketball in our group. We welcome him into the Magic family, as we move forward in a positive direction.”
Josh Robbins: There was certainly a disconnect between Scott Skiles & GM Rob Hennigan. A few disagreements on personnel & on the mindset of the team.
The Orlando Magic have decided who will represent them at the NBA Draft Lottery on May 17 in Manhattan. Franchise co-founder Pat Williams will sit in the room where pingpong balls will be drawn, and general manager Rob Hennigan will sit on stage when the lottery results are revealed on TV, a Magic spokesman said.
While the Magic are hoping for another summer of growth from Aaron Gordon (20 years old), Mario Hezonja (20), Elfrid Payton (22), Victor Oladipo (23) and Fournier (23), GM Rob Hennigan and Skiles agree that the team needs to add some veteran leadership over the summer via free agency and trades. Orlando dealt its most experienced player, Channing Frye, to the Cleveland Cavaliers in February – a move designed to create more salary cap space when the free-agent courting process begins on July 1.
