Magic Introduce Rob Hennigan As NBA's Youngest GM
Published June 22, 2012
WHIZ KID: Also in Orlando, Brian Schmitz noted Hennigan during the press conference used words like “organic” and “analytics” and “process-based” and “systematic” and “synergy.” Schmitz: “The Magic have never had a GM like this. And maybe it’s time. … The likable Hennigan reminds me a little of John Gabriel, a super-smart guy who talked like a CEO and even held his vest close to his vest” (ORLANDOSENTINEL.com, 6/21). Hennigan previously worked for the Spurs and the Thunder, and L.A. Times columnist Bill Plaschke said they “are the two most forward-thinking organizations in the modern NBA, they’ve embraced the way it works, great breeding ground." Dallas Morning News columnist Tim Cowlishaw said he was “buying” Hennigan’s hire because “this is the right kind of move. This guy has learned in the two systems where they get it right” (“Around The Horn,” ESPN, 6/21).
