New general manager Rob Hennigan is wasting no time in shaping the Orlando Magic front office into his image. Hennigan made headlines on Sunday when he fired Dave Twardzik who served as assistant general manager under Otis Smith who was terminated by the team in May.
ESPN's Chris Broussard announced via Twitter that Hennigan already has his eyes onTwardzik's replacement:

Perry is highly regarded around the NBA. He has served under current Pistons GM, Joe Dumars since April of 2008. Despite Detroit's standing as a league bottom feeder, Perry has been tabbed as a future general manager in the NBA. He was once a finalist for the Seattle Supersonics vacancy that ultimately went to Sam Presti.
