The Lakeland Magic have hired Anthony Parker as general manager and Stan Heath as head coach.

Lakeland is the G League affiliate of the Orlando Magic.

“With Anthony (Parker) and Stan (Heath), we have established solid basketball leadership for our G League team in Lakeland,” said Jeff Weltman. “Having our G League team closely aligned and in unison with the parent club is vital to our success. Bringing Anthony and Stan on board to guide those operations and lead that group will be of great value to us.”

Parker has spent the last five seasons as a scout with the Orlando Magic. 

Heath has spent the last two seasons (2015-17) as an assistant coach at Boston College. He served as head coach at Kent State University, the University of Arkansas and the University of South Florida, compiling a record of 209-206 (.504) from 2001-14.
