If you're interested in joining the best teams in the league, there's one way to get there: hire the people who currently run them. The Orlando Magic is looking for both a new general manager and a head coach, and word is that the GM could come from one of two candidates currently working for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Given the way the team has wisely built through the draft and incredible scouting, that's not a surprise.
Adrian Wojnarowski writes, "Thunder vice president and assistant general manager Troy Weaver and Spurs assistant GM Dennis Lindsey have been targeted, and Orlando has been granted permission to talk with Weaver, sources said. The Spurs' OK of permission for Lindsey is imminent, sources said. Orlando has also been granted permission to speak with Oklahoma City's assistant GM Rob Hennigan, who came into the league with the Spurs."
Weaver is Sam Presti's right hand man and is likely in line for interest from multiple teams.
