Magic hire Hennigan, 30, as GM


ORLANDO, Florida — Without a coach and facing a future that may not include five-time All-Star center Dwight Howard, the Orlando Magic are at something of a crossroads.

Now at least they have someone in charge.

The Magic introduced their new general manager Thursday, assigning 30-year-old Rob Hennigan with the task of reversing the fortunes of an NBA franchise that has been slipping since reaching the NBA Finals three years ago.

"There's no question there's pressure," said Hennigan. "This is a pressure business and you've got to earn your keep, and nobody's going to try to do any favors for you. We're just going to keep our heads down and keep our sleeves rolled up and get to work."
