Magic In “Advanced Talks” With Rob Hennigan


After a long and diligent search, it looks like the Orlando Magic have just about found their man, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo.

Hennigan is currently an executive with the Oklahoma City Thunder and their official website lists Hennigan as Assistant general manager/player personnel.

Hennigan joined the San Antonio Spurs as an intern in 2004-05 and quickly became the team’s basketball operations assistant. He was named director of basketball operations in 2007. He then joined the Thunder as director of scouting before being promoted to his current job in 2010.

Since the Thunder play in an elimination game, David Baumann of Brighthouse Sports, citing a Magic source, says “Thursday is an unlikely day for a press conference because Hennigan’s ‪#OKC‬ team plays an elimination game that night.”

Update: It’s official.
