Magic fire longtime assistant GM and 6 scoutsPosted by Inside Hoops
New Orlando Magic General Manager Rob Hennigan has started to reconfigure the franchise’s basketball operations department.
On Sunday, Hennigan fired Assistant General Manager Dave Twardzik and six scouts.
In addition to Twardzik, regional scout Tom Conrad, international scout Rudy D’Amico, international scouting coordinator Sam Foggin, pro scout Bob Staak, regional scout Greg Stratton and NBA advance scout Al Walker were let go, team spokesman Joel Glass confirmed.
Scouting coordinator Brian Wright will remain on the staff, Glass said.
Hennigan declined to comment.
Glass said Twardzik has been given the option to remain with the team through Thursday’s NBA draft, but it’s unclear whether Twardzik will do so.
