The Orlando Magic have been shaking things up all summer, and it seems there are still a lot of shake ups left due to the Dwight Howard situation. Not much more will happen in the front office, though, as new general manager Rob Hennigan cleaned house on Sunday afternoon.
Hennigan, hired by the team last week to replace Otis Smith, fired the majority of the remaining members of Orlando's basketball operations department, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
On Sunday, Hennigan fired Assistant General Manager Dave Twardzik and six scouts. In addition to Twardzik, regional scout Tom Conrad, international scout Rudy D'Amico, international scouting coordinator Sam Foggin, pro scout Bob Staak, regional scout Greg Stratton and NBA advance scout Al Walker were let go, team spokesman Joel Glass confirmed.
Scouting coordinator Brian Wright will remain on the staff, Glass said.
Hennigan's coaching staff will also be brand new, as head coach Stan Van Gundy was fired earlier this year and it's likely the new coach will bring in his own assistants.
Now all the team needs to do is figure out the on-court stuff, I guess.
