Jeff Weltman Rumors

Weltman and GM John Hammond are continuing to search for a coach to replace Frank Vogel, who was fired on April 12. Weltman declined comment when asked Tuesday if he and Hammond have finished interviewing prospective candidates. Weltman said: “The process has been, I think, deliberate and thorough, and we’re very pleased with some of the guys that we’ve interviewed, and we continue to move forward.”
“We face a few free-agent issues, and obviously Aaron would be at the top of that list,” Weltman said. “I can’t comment too deeply on that other than to say Aaron has a lot of potential. He’s a hard worker. And we will have substantive talks with his agent. Whether we can get something done, we’ll see. But I know that he wants to be here and we’d like to keep him.”

The Magic announced Vogel’s dismissal at 8:47 a.m., a few minutes after Magic President of Basketball Operations Jeff Weltman met with Vogel inside the team’s Amway Center offices. “We would like to thank Frank for his contributions to the Orlando Magic,” Weltman said in a statement. “We appreciate the sacrifices he made as head coach and certainly wish him and his family well going forward.”
