Orlando Magic Fire Dave Twardzik, Six Scouts, According to Report

.

The Orlando Magic have fired assistant General Manager Dave Twardzik and six members of the team's scouting department, according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. Rob Hennigan, the team's new GM, made these decisions his first after joining the Magic on Wednesday.

Twardzik, who had been with the team since 2003, ran the Magic's college and international scouting operations. As Robbins notes, Orlando's record with draft success has been spotty for the last several seasons. None of Orlando's three most recent draft picks--center Daniel Orton, power forward Justin Harper, or swingman DeAndre Liggins--has made an immediate impact on the team. Robbins says the Magic have invited Twardzik to stay with the team through Thursday's NBA Draft, but it is unclear if he will take that offer.

Hennigan also dismissed advance scout Al Walker, pro scout Bob Staak, regional scout Greg Stratton, international scout Rudy D'Amico, scouting coordinator Sam Foggin, and regional scout Tom Conrad on Sunday. He declined comment on the moves.
