Report: Magic to interview Thunder, Spurs personnel for GM position

By Matt Moore | NBA writer
The Magic's candidates to take over their vacant GM position in the wake of Otis Smith's departure are improving. Last week it was Shaq. This week, members of two of the best organizations in the NBA. From Yahoo Sports:

Thunder vice president and assistant general manager Troy Weaver and Spurs assistant GM Dennis Lindsey have been targeted, and Orlando has been granted permission to talk with Weaver, sources said. The Spurs' OK of permission for Lindsey is imminent, sources said.

Orlando has also been granted permission to speak with Oklahoma City's assistant GM Rob Hennigan, who came into the league with the Spurs.

via Thunder, Spurs executives among strong candidates for Magic's GM - Yahoo! Sports.

Both organizations have not only won a lot of games, but have drafted well, then developed late first-round and second-round talent. They make the most of what they have. Maybe more importantly, both teams are known as high-character organizations.

This is how you rebuild a team. The only question is if the new GM will be tasked with trading the franchise superstar and how they will go about getting their Tim Duncan/Kevin Durant. That's the real trick.
