Milwaukee Bucks Rumors
The Magic interviewed several candidates for the job including Milwaukee Bucks general manager John Hammond. The team was interested in hiring Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin for the position. Griffin had discussions about the job but never was able to formally interview because the Cavs did not grant permission and the Magic decided to move on.
There were some observers who felt the Milwaukee Bucks would have seriously considered selecting Ivan Rabb if he had decided to remain in the 2016 NBA draft. But Rabb, a talented all-around power forward, opted to return to the University of California for his second season and the Bucks, with the 10th overall, wound up choosing center-power forward Thon Maker.
