NBA Rumors: Jeff Bower, Dennis Lindsey Two of Three Finalists in Orlando Magic GM Search, According to Report

Derick Hingle-US PRESSWIRE- Presswire

The Orlando Magic's search for a new General Manager is nearing its conclusion, with the team arranging for the finalists to meet with team ownership in the coming days, reports Adrian Wojnarowski. The Yahoo! scribe says the Magic have narrowed their choices to three finalists: San Antonio Spurs vice president and assistant GM Dennis Lindsey and former New Orleans Hornets GM Jeff Bower are two, with the third still not known.

Magic CEO Alex Martins interviewed Bower; Lindsey; Indiana Pacers executive Kevin Pritchard; ESPN analyst and former Portland Trail Blazers executive Tom Penn; and Oklahoma City Thunder assistant GMs Troy Weaver and Rob Hennigan. Pritchard withdrew his name from consideration after learning the Pacers intended to promote him to GM, while Hennigan's name has not surfaced in recent reports about the situation, suggesting he is not a serious candidate. This information indicates that either Penn or Weaver, whose claim to fame is pushing the Thunder to draft Russell Westbrook, is the third finalist.

Martins has said he wanted to have a new GM in place with time to spare before the 2012 NBA Draft, which is scheduled for June 28th. Assistant GM Dave Twardzik has handled Draft scouting for the Magic, while Director of Player Development Adonal Foyle has conducted at least one Draft workout for the club.
