Vaughn Front-Runner for Magic Coach?
The Orlando Magic’s search for a new head coach is entering its final phase.
San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Jacque Vaughn, widely presumed to be front-runner for the job, met with Magic CEO Alex Martins on Friday in Las Vegas for a second-round interview.
“We’re not going to comment on the process and where it stands,” Martins told the Orlando Sentinel on Saturday.
The interview occurred in Las Vegas because the city is the site of the annual NBA Summer League and Vaughn served as the head coach of the Spurs’ summer-league team. Martins also was in Las Vegas for a meeting of the NBA’s Board of Governors.
