Orlando has appointed Matt Lloyd as the interim GM, league source tells @TheVertical. He will be a candidate for the permanent job.

No thanks to Matt Lloyd. We need new blood.

Matt Lloyd:

http://www.blogabull...-matt-lloyd-and

Matt Lloyd is one of the most brilliant scouts you've never heard of. It's a shame, because he helped build the Chicago Bulls franchise to what it is today.

Lloyd's official title was Director of College Scouting from 2007-2011, but he was the guy responsible for eyeing and evaluating who the Bulls would draft. He was one of the very few in the Bulls' organization that embraced an analytics-based approach in evaluating talent, keeping detailed statistical databases of draft prospects.

The Bulls had an enormous amount of success in drafting college players with Lloyd taking helm of the ship. From 2007 to 2011, here were some of the Bulls' picks under Lloyd:


•Joakim Noah (9th)
•Derrick Rose (1st)
•Taj Gibson (26th)
•James Johnson (16th)
•Jimmy Butler (30th)

Lloyd left in 2012, promoted to Assistant General Manager for the Orlando Magic. After his departure, the Bulls' drafting fell off a cliff.

The Magic also have fired assistant GM Scott Perry and made assistant GM Matt Lloyd the interim GM: http://thesent.nl/2pxE0xG .


Sources tell the Orlando Sentinel that Magic officials have interest in former NBA All-Star and former Magic player Grant Hill to work as president of basketball operations. But it’s unclear if Hill has interest in the job. Joining the Magic would require Hill to divest his small ownership stake in the Atlanta Hawks.



Dayyyyyyyyuuuuum. Cleaning the house!

I never disliked Henny, but I guess it was time.

Kinda shocked actually. Thought he'd be given one last year to work with Vogel

I don't think any of us are qualified to say "no thanks" to anyone without knowing actual credentials.

I wonder if he stays on in that position?

I like the Grant Hill tip. I think that's a positive move.

I brought his name up a while ago.

GHill would be good and even though it has some small nepotism to it,it's also sensible because of who is he, how intelligent and well liked he is. He knows the game too.

I'd be happy about this
