ORLANDO, Fla. - The Orlando Magic has fired General Manager Rob Hennigan.
The announcement was made Thursday by Orlando Magic CEO Alex Martins.
Matt Lloyd has been named interim general manager and will be in the running for the permanent position, the Orlando Magic said.
“We appreciate Rob’s efforts to rebuild the team, but we feel we have not made any discernible improvement over the last few years specifically,” Martins said in a news release. “It’s time for different leadership in basketball operations. We certainly wish Rob and his family well.
“Matt brings solid experience, and his appointment as general manager on an interim basis will allow us to seamlessly continue our preparations for the upcoming draft.”
Hennigan was named general manager on June 20, 2012. Orlando's record during his tenure was 132-278 (.332), the second-worst in the NBA over that span, the Orlando Magic said.
