Magic GM Search: Three Finalists To Meet With Orlando Ownership

The field has been narrowed down for three potential candidates for the vacant Orlando Magic general manager position, according to a report by Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

Oklahoma City Thunder assistant GM Rob Hennigan, San Antonio Spurs assistant GM Dennis Lindsey and former New Orleans Hornets GM Jeff Bower will all meet with Magic ownership over the next few days. The Magic hope to have a GM in place within about 10 days of the NBA Draft on June 28.

Hennigan, in his fourth year with the Thunder, began his career as an intern with the Spurs. He was promoted to assistant GM/player personnel two years ago.

Lindsey has been the assistant GM in San Antonio for five years. He had previously worked for 11 seasons with the Houston Rockets. Lindsey has been a popular target for GM jobs, having pulled out of consideration for GM positions with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Phoenix Suns and Toronto Raptors.

Bower finished third place in executive of the year voting in 2008. That year, the Hornets won 59 games and pushed the Spurs to seven games in the Western Conference semifinals. He has a reputation of being one of the most resourceful GMs in the NBA, having dealt with small payrolls and getting good results while with the Hornets.
