NBA Rumors: Orlando Magic Hire Harold Ellis, According to Report

Mandatory Credit: Tim Fuller-US PRESSWIRE

The Orlando Magic have hired Harold Ellis, formerly of the Detroit Pistons, to join their front office, reports Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit Free Press, citing "sources." Listed as the Pistons' Director of Pro Personnel, Goodwill says Ellis' position with Orlando will be "similar." The Magic have yet to formally announce Ellis' hiring.

Ellis has spent three seasons with Detroit "as a scout with emphasis on pro player personnel," according to the team's media guide, and was an assistant coach with the team for the 2008/09 season. Prior to joining the Pistons, Ellis worked for the Atlanta Hawks in a similar capacity; he also served as an assistant coach for the NBA D-League's Roanoke Dazzle.

If hired, Ellis would be Orlando's second hire from Detroit's front-office since the offseason began. New general manager Rob Hennigan made Scott Perry, formerly Detroit's Vice President of Basketball Operations, his assistant general manager on June 25th.
