MAGIC GM BECOMES FIRST OFF-SEASON CASUALTY

The Magic got things Going In the ‘cleaning out shop’ race.

Orlando fired GM Rob Hennigan early this morning, opening the door for the Magic to find a replacement before May’s draft lottery.

The Magic spent a ton of money in free agency this past offseason, completing a variety of confusing moves in the last two years.

Hennigan had a great early start in Orlando with the trade of Dwight Howard and solid pick ups in the draft.

But the trade of Tobias Harris and Victor Oladipo did him in, with both seen as one-sided trades that the Magic weren’t the beneficiary of.

With a loaded up cap going into the offseason, the Magic again are stuck in the middle of a rebuild that’s lasted entirely too long.
