With Jeff Weltman joining the Orlando Magic as president of basketball operations, there is a rising expectation that John Hammond will join him in the front office.

Hammond has one more season remaining on his contract with the Milwaukee Bucks. Justin Zanik is expected to take over general manager duties with the Bucks after the 17-18 season.

Weltman worked with Hammond in the Milwaukee front office before he joined Masai Ujiri with the Toronto Raptors.
