Former Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan has been hired for a front-office role by the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to a report from Basketball Insiders.
Hennigan, 35, was hired as the Magic’s GM in 2012 but was fired in April. He spent four years working for the Thunder and GM Sam Presti. Both had previously worked for the San Antonio Spurs.
In Hennigan’s five years as GM, the Magic posted a 132-278 record — the worst five-year stretch in franchise history.
According to the Orlando Sentinel: “Magic CEO Alex Martins admitted that former coach Scott Skiles was right about the failed GM and should have stuck around until the team figured out what to do about it.”
Hennigan has a degree in broadcast journalism from Emerson College, where he graduated from in 2004.
