The Orlando Magic opened Tuesday as one of two NBA teams with an available head-coaching position. That number increased to three when the New Orleans Pelicans announced they've fired coach Monty Williams.
In five seasons coaching the New Orleans franchise, Williams compiled a 173-221 (.439) record. He guided the Pelicans to a 45-37 record and a playoff berth in the 2014/15 season, but the Golden State Warriors swept them out of the first round of the playoffs.
Interestingly, both Williams and Vaughn come from the Gregg Popovich coaching tree, having served as assistants to Popovich with the San Antonio Spurs. Both men also played for the Magic, but not at the same time.
