Magic GM Candidates Asked To Consider Malone, Clifford


Per Yannis Koutroupis of Hoops World, whoever becomes the next Orlando Magic General Manager will be asked to consider both Steve Clifford and Michael Malone, son of current Magic Assistant Coach Brendan Malone, as the next Magic Head Coach.

Former New Orleans Hornets general manager Jeff Bower, San Antonio Spurs assistant general manager Dennis Lindsey, former Portland Trail Blazers vice president of basketball operations Tom Penn and Oklahoma City Thunder assistant general manager Troy Weaver are all under consideration.

Sources also revealed that they have all been asked to consider Golden State Warriors assistant coach Mike Malone and Magic assistant coach Steve Clifford in their search for a head coach.

Koutroupis also believes Bower, Penn and Weaver are the finalist for Orlando’s General Manager job.
