As we noted earlier today, Magic general manager Rob Hennigan made his first hire, bringing aboard Pistons executive Scott Perry to replace Dave Twardzik as the team's assistant GM. Hennigan also parted ways with Adonal Foyle, which ESPN.com's John Hollinger suggests (via Twitter) is the clearest indication that Hennigan has total control in Orlando. The Magic were rumored to be grooming Foyle for the GM job down the road, but Hennigan appears to be clearing house and bringing his own people aboard. In Detroit, Oklahoma City, and San Antonio, changes are also afoot, so let's check out the details….
- To replace Perry as assistant GM, the Pistons are likely to promote director of scouting George David, tweets TNT's David Aldridge.
- David Vanterpool figures to be in line for a promotion in Oklahoma City, with former Thunder assistant GM Hennigan now in charge in Orlando, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
- R.C. Buford and Dennis Lindsey are expected to take over many of Danny Ferry's duties in San Antonio after the Spurs exec was hired by the Hawks, tweets Aldridge. Aldridge adds that former NBA veteran Sean Marks is being groomed for a management role in San Antonio.
