Our pal, Alex Kennedy of Hoops World, believes the Magic began looking at potential candidates to replace current General Manager Otis Smith during the season. On Monday morning, Kennedy provided a list of those potential candidates.
The Magic started zeroing in on possible replacements during the season and league sources believe Smith will be let go in the coming weeks. David Morway, Kevin Pritchard, Jeff Bower, David Griffin, Tony Ronzone and Larry Harris have been mentioned as potential candidates.
Over the next few weeks, Magic brass will meet and discuss what to do with their head coach and general manager.
Many outlets have reported Adonal Foyle had already taken over usual GM duties from Smith by the trade deadline.
Smith continues to say he’s not sure if he will return.
