The Orlando Magic Have Interviewed Adonal Foyle


Per Jarrod Rudolph of RealGM, the Magic have interviewed former Magic Center and current Director of Player Development for the team, for the General Manager position. Outside of a brief stint in Memphis (he was sent there on February 19, 2009, waived on March 1 and returned to the Magic on March 23). The Magic are expected to fire current General Manager Otis.

The Magic were known to be grooming Foyle for an eventual front office position and there have been rumors that Foyle has been in control of the Magic, personel-wise for the last few months.

Foyle has since denied the rumor via twitter, saying “Let me be abundantly clear I have never been interviewed for a GM job with the Orlando Magic.”

    Don’t exactly know how good he would be as a GM, but Foyle is the man. I read an article on him when he was a player about all of the humanitarian work he did. Excellent guy, and VERY BRIGHT, which is at least more than I can say for Otis.

    He stll does all of that stuff Keith. Just a great human being.
