Lindsey Hunter, a former Southfield Christian assistant coach, is reportedly going to interview for vacant Orlando Magic head coaching position. From Josh Robbins, Brian Schmitz and Megan Walsh of the Orlando Sentinel:
The Magic are expected to interview Utah Jazz assistant coach Jeff Hornacek and Phoenix Suns player development coach Lindsey Hunter soon.
Hornacek’s candidacy was reported first by The Salt Lake Tribune. Hunter’s candidacy previously was reported by WKMG.
Oh, and I forgot to mention above, Hunter also had a solid 17-year playing career in the NBA, much of it with the Detroit Pistons. Although he doesn’t have a lot of coaching experience at the NBA level, he was a key part of the Southfield Christian staff last season and he spent his last few years as a player as more of a de facto player-coach on the end of the bench, notably in Chicago helping mentor a young Derrick Rose.
