Frank Vogel thinks the Magic can make a splash in free agency this summer.
The Magic have a young and talented roster, but Vogel thinks they'll be able to add even more talent to their roster. "I think this team is capable of making a big free agent acquisition this summer," Vogel said. We'll keep an eye on the Magic's moves when free agency starts on July 1 as Vogel's presence could help lure a solid free agent to Orlando. May 24 - 9:40 AM

Coach Frank Vogel said the Magic will " execute more of an analytically-based offensive approach" next season.

"I think smaller lineups are definitely valuable and needed in today’s NBA," Vogel said. "So I think I’ve just grown in flexibility to try to adapt to today’s game really on both ends of the court: having the defensive versatility to do it but also getting involved in the running game." This sounds a lot like what Vogel was going to try to do with the Pacers, but he didn't really have the personnel. He does this time, so expect the Magic to run a little more. This is good news for all the Magic players.

The Magic have reportedly reached a deal in principle to bring on Frank Vogel as their next head coach.

Vogel will have a very young and talented roster to work with, and with Scott Skiles no longer a part of the equation, guys like Victor Oladipo, Aaron Gordon and perhaps even Mario Hezonja will see a boost in value. Oladipo was a first-round stud after the All-Star break this season, so he'll likely cost you a second-round pick on draft day. Vogel's Pacers produced a regular-season record of 250-181 over six seasons, and he coached the team to the playoffs in five of his six seasons there.

The Magic are reportedly moving towards offering Frank Vogel the head coaching position in Orlando.

Vogel will reportedly begin contract negotiations on Thursday, and it seems all but certain he'll take over the helm of the Magic next season. J.B. Bickerstaff reportedly impressed management during his interview, but not enough to sway them away from Vogel.

Frank Vogel will have contract talks with the Magic on Thursday.

Vogel has already met with the teams' owners, so this could move very quickly. Vogel has been mentioned as a candidate for several vacant head coaching positions, but it looks like he's close to inheriting a very young and talented Magic roster. Stay tuned.

Frank Vogel has reportedly emerged as a "serious candidate" to land the head coaching gig in Orlando.

Vogel is also being pursued by the Knicks, Grizzlies and Rockets, although he's reportedly most intrigued with the Orlando gig. Vogel is currently one of the more accomplished head coaching candidates out there seeking work, so he'll more than likely be employed next season.

Phil Jackson reportedly met with Frank Vogel last week to discuss the head coaching vacancy in New York.

Kurt Rambis, Davis Blatt and Vogel are reportedly the top-3 candidates for the head coaching position in New York, with Rambis still believed to be the frontrunner. It seems unlikely that Jackson will go with a coach that won't exclusively run the triangle offense.
May 15 - 3:41 PM

The Magic are expected to reach out to Frank Vogel for their coaching vacancy.

He's the most coveted coach right now. The Scott Skiles story happened out of nowhere and it had a lot to do with disagreements on personnel. Vogel would likely handle the rotation in a similar fashion compared to Skiles, but he obviously is not as likely to put players in the doghouse.
May 14 - 12:00 AM

Frank Vogel is reportedly at the top of the Grizzlies list to become their next head coach.

The Rockets and Knicks have also reached out to Vogel, but the Vogel has history with Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace from their days together with the Celtics. While Memphis appears to be the front-runner for Joerger's services, we'll keep an eye on this situation as the former Pacers head coach won't be out of a job for very long.
May 10 - 10:08 AM

The Rockets are in contact with a Frank Vogel's representative.

The Rockets are pulling out all the stops to find their next coach. Vogel is perhaps the most attractive available coach within reason, so he likely has more of the leverage in talks. Vogel's reps have also been in talks with the Grizzlies and Knicks. With Dave Joerger off the board, teams will be going after Vogel harder than ever.
May 9 - 3:11 PM

The Grizzlies have contacted Frank Vogel about their head coaching vacancy, sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Although Vogel has been the most connected name to the opening to date, Memphis has a long working list of candidates which, in part, includes Jeff Hornacek, Ettore Messina, Patrick Ewing, Nate Tibbets and David Fizdale. The Grizzlies are expected to begin interviewing candidates at the Chicago predraft camp this week, but it's unclear when the search may reach its conclusion.
May 9 - 11:00 AM

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Grizzlies will pursue Frank Vogel for their head-coaching job.

The Grizzlies just fired Dave Joerger on Saturday morning so it sounds like they want to make a move pretty quickly. Vogel is also a candidate for teams such as the Knicks and Rockets, but Wojnarowski is reporting that the Grizzlies are willing to pay market value for top available candidates.
May 7 - 10:36 AM

The Knicks contacted Frank Vogel to test his interest in their head-coaching job.

They have not requested an interview yet and Phil Jackson hasn't made a decision how to proceed, according to the report. Vogel not being brought back to Pacers put him at the top of the list for most teams with a vacancy. The Knicks will likely have to decide between Vogel and Kurt Rambis.

The Pacers have decided not to bring back Frank Vogel as the team's head coach.

Pacers president Larry Bird wants more offense from his squad and has decided to move on from Vogel. While Vogel will have interest around the league, Bird said he doesn't have a candidate in mind and will conduct a wide search for Vogel's replacement.
May 5 - 11:11 AM

Frank Vogel could be interested in the Knicks vacant head coach position if he is fired by the Pacers, according to sources close to Vogel.

There have been rumors that Vogel could be fired as soon as Friday, so we could see him mentioned in the Knicks head coaching search soon. Interim coach Kurt Rambis is also in the mix for the Knicks, but Vogel could move to the front of the line if the Pacers send him packing.
