The Orlando Magic have dismissed Rob Hennigan as general manager, CEO Alex Martins announced today. In addition, Matt Lloyd has been named interim general manager and will be a candidate for the position permanently.
“We appreciate Rob’s efforts to rebuild the team, but feel we have not made any discernible improvement over the last few years specifically. It's time for different leadership in basketball operations. We certainly wish Rob and his family well,” said Martins.
Hennigan was named general manager on June 20, 2012. Orlando’s record during his tenure was 132-278 (.322), the second-worst in the NBA over that span.
Lloyd was named assistant general manager of the Magic on June 29, 2012. He came to Orlando after spending 13 years with the Chicago Bulls, his last five as their director of college scouting.
