Of the two high profile job openings the Magic organization has recently carved for themselves, it looks like general manager will be the first one filled. According to CBSSports.com's Ken Berger, the team will begin scheduling interviews for the general manager position on Friday, and will attempt to find a replacement for Otis Smith within three weeks.
With championship experience serving as the glittering star on resumes that cross Magic CEO Alex Martins' desk, current Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak will likely be contacted by the team, Berger writes. Other candidates include Pacers GM David Morway, former Hornets GM Jeff Bower, and current Pacers executive Kevin Pritchard. Former Knicks GM Donnie Walsh is said to be a perfect fit, but appears only interested in replacing Larry Bird, should Bird retire at the end of this season.
