Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports that the Orlando Magic's search for a new head coach is entering its final phase, and that San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Jacque Vaughn met with Magic CEO Alex Martins on Friday in Las Vegas for a second round interview.
According to Robbins, Magic GM Rob Hennigan has whittled the candidates down to three: Philadelphia 76ers associate head coach Michael Curry, Phoenix Suns player development coach Lindsey Hunter, and Vaughn. Martins will conduct second-round interviews to narrow the list to one or two finalists for meetings with the Devos family.
Robbins also writes that Vaughn has been considered within NBA circles as the Magic's leading candidate for almost a week now. Golden State Warriors assistant coach Michael Malone was told he is no longer being considered and Indiana Pacers associate head coach Brian Shaw is also no longer under consideration.
