New Magic GM: "I think you're judged on the quality of your work"

Posted: Updated:

The Orlando Magic's new General Manager spoke to the media for the first time Thursday.  Rob Hennigan is 30-years-old and both he and Magic CEO Alex Martins both spoke about what factor his age plays in being general manager of an NBA franchise. 

"His experience and what he's done in the organizations that he's been with… far exceed his years.  And clearly that's what's important," said Martins. 

"The underlying factor is the relationships you have around the league… and… and the… the level of respect that… that you deal with.  Whether it's from… you or from the person you're speaking with.  So I think that… um… age is what it is.  I… I think you're judged on the quality of your work… and the way you treat people and the way you handle your business," said Hennigan. 

Hennigan spent the past four seasons with Oklahoma City, including the last two seasons as the Thunder's assistant general manager/player personnel.  Hennigan spent his first two seasons with the Thunder as the team's director of college/international player personnel.   

Prior to joining the Thunder, Hennigan spent four seasons with the San Antonio Spurs.  He was named director of basketball operations in September of 2007.  Hennigan began as an intern during the 2004-05 season and was later named the team's basketball operations assistant during the summer of 2005.  The Spurs won the NBA World Championship in 2004-05 and 2006-07. 

A native of Worcester, Massachusetts, Hennigan graduated with a degree in broadcast journalism from Emerson College in 2004.
