The Magic made many roster blunders during Hennigan’s tenure.
The Orlando Magic have fired general manager Rob Hennigan, the team announced on Thursday. He was hired as the youngest GM in the NBA. They also fired assistant GM Scott Perry, according to USA Today’s Jeff Zillgitt.
The team has appointed assistant Matt Lloyd as the interim GM, and he will be a candidate to keep the position permanently,
The move comes after a series of roster moves that have failed to bear fruit in central Florida. It is unclear whether those decisions were Hennigan’s or made by team president Alex Martins.
Most recently, Orlando dealt Serge Ibaka to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for Terrence Ross and the Raptors’ late first-round pick this season. But the Magic traded the Oklahoma City Thunder their 2013 first-round pick Victor Oladipo, 2016 first-round pick Domantas Sabonis, and Ersan Ilyasova for Ibaka in the first place.
“Who would do that? Why would you ever do that? So if you miss, the game is over. That makes no sense. That is like the dumbest thing I have ever heard. When you’re down two, you try to score. You don’t wait. No, you score. If you can score in one second you score.”
The Clippers had the ball with 18 seconds left and Chris Paul made a great drive to the basket, leaving 13 seconds on the clock and tying the game at 95. It was the right call and thing for Paul Orioles Cheap Jerseys and the Clippers to do. The reporter suggested the Clippers wait to make a move with only five seconds Cheap Red Sox Jerseys remaining on the clock but as Rivers stated, if the Clippers miss, they don’t get another chance. Hopefully Doc can get the Clippers back on track because Saturday’s loss to a depleted Jazz team was ugly.
