“We would like to thank Frank for his contributions to the Orlando Magic,” Weltman said in a statement. “We appreciate the sacrifices he made as head coach and certainly wish him and his family well going forward.”

Orlando will move on to its fifth coach since firing Stan Van Gundy after the 2011-12 season. A six-season playoff streak ended after Van Gundy’s departure that season, and the Magic haven’t made the postseason since — the longest drought in franchise history.
