ESPN – Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan downplayed a photo Monday night that appeared to show confidential lists of the team’s free-agent and trade priorities in a tweet posted by the agent of newly signed guard Patricio Garino.
Hennigan told the Sentinel the lists on the board were “not indicative of plans” and were “simply listing options, including some of which other teams have inquired about.”
Turns out the certain ‘someone’ who posted the picture happened to be Patricio Garino’s agent. Probably not the best way to begin your client’s tenure in Orlando. It’s not necessarily a huge deal by any means but it’s still kind of funny. The Orlando Magic, a true Mickey Mouse organization, leave their blueprints for future transactions up on a whiteboard that you can find in a 99 cent store. You can’t make this stuff up. What’s even more ridiculous is the fact that they leave the whiteboard out in the middle of a room where they negotiate deals with players. Horrible move by an absolutely pathetic franchise. Nothing new to see here. Now Rob Hennigan has to sit there and pretend like his elaborately drawn up whiteboard full of players wasn’t all that important when we all know damn well that it was.
