According to Bill Ingram of Hoops World, the Orlando Magic have narrowed the search for their next general manager to three names.
Magic down to Tom Penn, Troy Weaver and Dennis Weaver….according to sources….

Of course, Dennis Weaver should be Dennis Lindsey.
Tom Penn is a former Blazers executive and currently is an analyst for ESPN.
Troy Weaver is Oklahoma City’s Assistant General Manager.
Dennis Lindsey is San Antonio’s Assistant General Manager.
It’s a little strange that former Hornets General Manager Jeff Bower, who Magic CEO Alex Martins worked with in New Orleans, isn’t on this list. Bower was considered the favorite for the job earlier this week.
