The Orlando Magic moved quickly to fill their coaching vacancy, agreeing to a deal with Frank Vogel just a week after the position suddenly became available.
Vogel and Magic officials met during the day Thursday and reached a deal, which will not be final until Friday afternoon, said person with knowledge of the negotiations. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Magic have not announced the hire.
Vogel replaces Scott Skies, who surprised the organization when he resigned last Thursday. Vogel comes to Orlando as a proven head coach with playoff experience having led the Indiana Pacers the last five full seasons.
