Magic GM Rob Hennigan constantly thinking how to improve team's roster

Kevin C. Cox

Orlando's new general manager has been on duty 24/7, he says.

Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan has only been on the job five months, but he's already fully enveloped into doing whatever he can to make the team relevant again, writes Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel:

"It never stops," Hennigan ... said before the Magic faced the San Antonio Spurs Wednesday night at Amway Center.

"It's 24-7 here, for sure and probably 16-7 with just with the workload."

Hennigan, 30, is the youngest GM in the NBA. He was introduced as the Magic's new general manager on June 21.

Less than three weeks later, Hennigan made one of the biggest moves in the franchise's history, trading star Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Schmits wrote that Hennigan "heard the critics say he didn't get nearly enough for Dwight Howard." But one reason why Hennigan has succeeded in his short time in Orlando, wrote Schmitz, was because, as Hennigan said, "we try to ignore the noise, to tell you the truth."

After starting the year 2-0, the Magic have struggled and are 5-9 in Hennigan's inaugural season in charge. The Magic are in the midst of a two-game skid, with loses against the Boston Celtics and San Antonio Spurs.

Orlando is back in action Friday at home against the Brooklyn Nets.
