The Orlando Magic are giving strong consideration to firing Rob Hennigan at the end of the current season.

The Magic expected to contend for a spot in the playoffs this season.

Hennigan became general manager of the Magic at the age of 30 in 2012. Hennigan is signed through the 17-18 season.

Doc Rivers, Pat Garrity and Travis Schlenk have been mentioned as candidates for the job.

Alex Martins has repeatedly deferred comment about Hennigan's job status until season's end.

"First and foremost, the criticism is warranted," Hennigan told the Sentinel last month. "I don't know if it's welcome because no one likes to get criticized, but the job we have and the job we're trying to do is certainly subject to that. Our fans, quite frankly, deserve to be upset and deserve to be frustrated. ... I think the proverbial hot seat comes with the territory."
