As Rob Hennigan continues to remake the Orlando Magic's basketball operations department, he's likely to show an interest in Matt Lloyd of the Chicago Bulls, reports Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated. Lloyd, the Bulls' Director of College Scouting, has spent 13 years with Chicago. "Hennigan has his eye on [Lloyd]," Amick says, "as a respected scouting/stats man who has played a huge role in formulating the Bulls' college scouting database." The SI scribe says Lloyd, if hired, would not join Orlando until after the 2012 NBA Draft, which is Thursday.

According to the Bulls, Lloyd "oversees the scouting and information compilation of prospects for the NBA Draft, along with statistical analysis of pro and amateur players."

Hennigan's front-office overhaul began Sunday when he fired assistant General Manager Dave Twardzik and six members of the scouting department. Monday, he dismissed Adonal Foyle, the team's Director of Player Development, and hired Scott Perry from the Detroit Pistons to replace Twardzik.
