Tom Thibodeau has no interest, I'm told, in coaching Pelicans (feels Davis will leave when pact permits), Magic (Skiles on tap) or Nuggets.

Josh Robbins

If the Magic had interest in Tom Thibodeau, they now wouldn't have to compensate the Bulls: ht.ly/NyBam

Steve Kyler

Depends on what the ultimate plan is with Tobias Harris -- and where the Magic fall on Winslow, pretty mixed returns twitter.com/tonyyynyc/stat…

Kurt Helin

Report: Magic interview Mike Woodson, but they’re convinced Scott Skiles is the man for the job dlvr.it/B0mVzh

Steve Kyler

Every week I introduce a new wrinkle to my process -- this week was Magic drafting best shooter. twitter.com/tonyyynyc/stat…

Royce Young

Report: Scott Skiles, Magic 'inching closer to a partnership' cbsprt.co/1G1pJjl http://t.co/rF1JmFuEXD

Josh Robbins

Magic could face competition from Pelicans for Scott Skiles' coaching services (h/t @Marc Stein): ht.ly/NwNJd

Marc Stein

Skiles is frontrunner for Orlando Magic job but, according to ESPN sources, has been interviewed by Pelicans along with Gentry and Van Gundy

Scottie Pippen

Incredible how @88PKane works his magic on the ice. Blackhawks obviously very determined to take this series back to Anaheim.

Sean Deveney

Some round NBA think Pels and Magic playing chicken w JVG/Skiles to bluff Bulls into firing Thibs. Interesting notion sportingnews.com/nba/story/2015…

Ryen Russillo

Gumption RT @SJCeruti: If the #Magic indeed hire Scott Skiles it'd be an embarrassment. What in his other 3 ... tmi.me/1f4RCi

Adi Joseph

This @Sean Deveney report on the Bulls-Thibodeau situation helps explain why the Magic and Pelicans are sitting back: bit.ly/1FP9bsR

Evan Dunlap

Per @Ken Berger, Magic expected to hire Skiles "at the behest of owner Rich DeVos." cbssports.com/nba/writer/ken…

Steve Kyler

Max offer... a sign and trade would come after the Lakers get a commitment the Magic wouldn't match. twitter.com/Randy_BDA/stat…

Brian Schmitz

I fully expect Scott Skiles to be next Magic coach, maybe officially named Thursday or Friday.

Brian Schmitz

Magic's pending reunion with Scott Skiles has to be more than trip down memory lane. My column. bit.ly/1AxAwzg

NBA Finals Records: Michael 6-0, Duncan 5-1, Kobe 5-2, Magic 5-4, Bird 3-2, LeBron 2-3. But LeBron now the only one to go to five straight.

Ralph Lawler

End of debate. LeBron James IS the greatest player Basketball has ever seen. Apologies to Michael, Magic and all other candidates. #LBJ#1

Kendall Marshall

impressive --- RT @Chris Palmer: LeBron headed to his 5th Finals in a row. Michael, Magic and Bird never did that.

Chris Palmer

LeBron headed to his 5th Finals in a row. Michael, Magic and Bird never did that.

Steve Popper

The real magic of the Cavs in the NBA Finals? Worldwide media - meet J.R. Smith. You're welcome, world.

Tas Melas

LeBron James is the first player to go to five straight NBA Finals since 1966! Jordan didn't do it. Or Shaq. Or Magic... Kinda unbelievable.

Vincent Goodwill

Magic did it from 82-85. Bird did it from 84-87. If there was ever a doubt the Cavs could get there, it was LeBron going to 5 straight

Tom Haberstroh

LeBron five straight Finals. Jordan never did that. Magic never did that. Bird never did that. But James Jones has.

Jonathan Wasserman

If NY passes on Mudiay, have to wonder what Magic would do. Take another PG w/ a shaky J or fill a need w/ Hezonja/Porzingis/WCS/Winslow?

Steve Kyler

According to @Peter Vecsey - Orlando Magic will name Scott Skiles their next head coach in the coming weeks.

Trey Kerby

Sources tell me Scott Skiles will start going by "Scotty 2 Hotty" and plans on doing the worm down the sideline when the Magic win.

Michael Scotto

Orlando Magic will hire Scott Skiles as head coach later this week, a league source confirms. The news was first reported by @Peter Vecsey.

Kurt Helin

Report: Magic will name Scott Skiles coach this week dlvr.it/9zGVsw

Steve Kyler

Don't assume the 5th pick is all there is - Magic have cap money, a couple of trade chips and some roster spots. twitter.com/thewhitemamba1…

Steve Kyler

A chance? Sure... I don't see that as likely. Magic want the talent associated with the 5th pick - lots there. twitter.com/ORLMagicJeff/s…

Sean Highkin

Shaq hit one three-pointer in his career, in 96 with the Magic. Just looked that up for no reason in particular.

Steve Kyler

For my money - I think Scott Brooks, but the Magic have not reached out about him. twitter.com/ggsant/status/…

Steve Kyler

Magic ownership & senior leadership know Skiles & have a comfort level with Skiles... Malone not experienced enough twitter.com/onejeron/statu…

Steve Kyler

What Skiles is as a coach is what the Magic need - tough, disciplined hard nosed, experienced. twitter.com/debswim2010/st…

Steve Kyler

My little guy is actually a big LeBron James fan... but yes, he loves the Magic because he has met them all. twitter.com/kylexcited/sta…

Evan Dunlap

The Magic are reportedly set to hire Scott Skiles very soon sbnation.com/e/8418188?utm_…

Peter Vecsey

Not surprisingly, Skiles will be named Magic coach this wk, I am informed. He was favorite f outset. CEO did PR 4 team when SK starred 4 'em

Tim MacMahon

Other than LeBron and Magic, who else has been capable of playing point center?

Joe Vardon

Magic has 30 playoff triple-doubles. LeBron 12. Jason Kidd, 11

Earl K. Sneed

People quickly forget the greatness of Magic Johnson until they see he had 30 playoff triple-doubles and LeBron is second with just 12.

Joe Vardon

Next assist will give LeBron his 12th playoff triple-double, second only to Magic Johnson

Jason Walker

Said that before the series started. Take the same approach Larry Drew did with success vs. Dwight Howard/Magic. @NBAonTNT
