Both the agents for Phil Jackson and an Orlando Magic source denied Wednesday any contact between the parties about a role in the front office.
Sam Vincent was freelancing a proposal with no authorization to speak for the Magic, the agents said.
"One, Phil never voiced any interest in Orlando," Todd Musburger said "never had us check it out, never checked it out himself. Two, Orlando never called."
The Magic's list of general manager candidates remains at five: former Portland general manager Kevin Pritchard, Oklahoma City assistant general manager Troy Weaver, Thunder assistant general manager Rob Hennigan, Spurs assistant general manager Dennis Lindsey and former Hornets general manager Jeff Bower. Former Pacers and Knicks executive Donnie Walsh had been on the list, but Walsh removed himself from consideration last week.
