Orlando’s drafting success under GM Rob Hennigan and Assistant GMs Scott Perry and Matt Lloyd has CEO Alex Martins confident that the Magic will be able to uncover a gem with the No. 5 pick in the upcoming draft.
“I have an incredibly high level of confidence in our Basketball Operations team because they have drafted very, very well over the course of the last several drafts,’’ said Martins, who represented the Magic on the lottery dais Tuesday night. “We know that they’ll do the same this year to add another core piece that we’ll be able to build around for many years to come.’’
Hennigan echoed those thoughts and heaped praise for the past success onto Lloyd, the Magic’s Director of Scouting. In addition to working through the process of hiring a new coach, Hennigan and his staff will soon start bringing potential draft targets into the Magic’s headquarters at the Amway Center for interviews and workouts. Hennigan feels with the addition of a full-time coach, another top-five pick and the solid talent base already in place, there is plenty to be excited about in the seasons ahead.
