The Orlando Magic fired GM Rob Hennigan Thursday a week after a photo revealed the team’s offseason plans, including a possible trade of Aaron Gordon to the Philadelphia 76ers.
“I’m not going to sit here and point to individual instances or transactions or individual decisions that Rob made,” Magic CEO Alex Martins said. “We’re just not at a place where we need to be. We’re culturally not focused on winning in the way that we need to be and we also have not made the right decisions from a roster standpoint to be able to compete for a playoff spot.”
The Magic had a 29-53 record and are missing the playoffs again. Orlando has not said what the next plan is, but the Orlando Sentinel detailed what the plan could be.
Sources told the newspaper that the franchise could target Grant Hill to work as president of basketball operations, but whether he has interest in the job remains unseen. Detroit Pistons associate GM Pat Garrity has also been linked to the job.
