Rob Hennigan in ‘advanced talks’ to be Orlando Magic GM

Oklahoma City Thunder assistant general manager Rob Hennigan is in “advanced talks” with the Orlando Magic to be their next general manager, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Hennigan has been with the Thunder organization for four seasons. Like Sam Presti, Hennigan came from the San Antonio Spurs organization where he worked for five years.

Hennigan was the Director of College and International Player Personnel during his first two years with the Thunder and then was promoted to assistant general manager when Rich Cho left for Portland in 2010.

Being the one responsible for player personnel during those years when the Thunder drafted so well has to look good on a guy’s resume.

The Magic fired their former GM Otis Smith along with head coach Stan Van Gundy at the end of May.

If Orlando is trying to copy the Thunder, that’s probably a good idea.
