Is the resignation of Scott Skiles an indictment of the team’s front office.
And should the team completely start over?
Skiles is gone after less than a calendar year. He won 35 games while he was here, and from the whispers, he clashed with the front office throughout. Now, as the Magic prepare to go forward, who is there to lead the direction?
General manager Rob Hennigan? He’s been in the job four years now. The Magic haven’t gotten a lot better. Should Hennigan continue to be in charge of the franchise? Remember, he butted heads with Skiles.
The Magic could go to the ranks of colleges for their next coach and pick from among Kentucky’s John Calipari, UConn’s Kevin Ollie or Arizona’s Sean Miller.
Or they could look to an NBA assistant such as Atlanta’s Kenny Atkinson or Boston’s Jay Larranaga.
Whoever takes over, the Magic’s next five years need to be better than the last five.
