Scott Perry Rumors
What about the emerging candidates? It’s been established that there’s no paucity of blacks capable of managing organizations. Who are they? Numerous NBA executives say that the two most highly regarded black candidates are Oklahoma City Thunder vice president and assistant GM Troy Weaver and Orlando Magic vice president and assistant GM Scott Perry. Knicks director of player personnel Mark Hughes and Utah Jazz vice-president of basketball operations Walt Perrin are also highly regarded. Sixers vice president of player personnel Marc Eversley, an African-Canadian who is expected to become a U.S. citizen soon, is also well-regarded candidate.
Skiles was not a part of the Magic’s delegation that interviewed eight draft prospects Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening in Chicago. The delegation included Hennigan, assistant general managers Scott Perry and Matt Lloyd, scout Anthony Parker and lead assistant coach Adrian Griffin. Magic officials said a search for a new coach will begin immediately.
