The Orlando Magic like the progress they are seeing with their franchise and have award head coach Jacque Vaughn and GM Rob Hennigan with extensions.
“Rob and Jacque have worked extremely hard in establishing a culture which embodies teamwork, hard work, hunger for success and humility,” Magic CEO Alex Martins said in a statement. “With their strategic direction and leadership we feel we are headed in the right direction, which will allow us to achieve our goals of contending in a long-term, sustainable fashion.”
The Magic went from 20 wins in Vaughn’s first season to 23-59 this season. At 39, he is the second-youngest coach in the NBA. Boston’s Brad Stevens is 37.
