Orlando fires GM Hennigan after missing playoffs for 5 years

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) The Orlando Magic have fired general manager Rob Hennigan, saying Thursday it was time to go in a different direction after missing the postseason for five straight seasons.

"The facts are we regressed this year and we made the decision that five years under this leadership team was enough to show improvement, which we have not," Magic CEO Alex Martins said Thursday afternoon. "I believe we have provided all of the assets, the autonomy and the tools necessary over the past five years in order to build a successful program."

Hennigan didn't come close to getting it done.
