The Portland Trail Blazers are coming off the heels of a disappointing four-game sweep in the first round of the playoffs against the New Orleans Pelicans. It has marked the second straight exit in the opening round by way of a sweep for the franchise. This latest discouraging end to the Blazers’ season could potentially put head coach Terry Stotts out of a job and on the open market. If Portland takes this route, Marc Stein of The New York Times is reporting that the Orlando Magic could be one of the team’s interested in making him their next head coach. Stotts has been at the helm of the Blazers for the last six seasons that includes a current streak of five-straight playoff appearances with two trips to the Western Conference semifinals. He has brought a tremendous amount of stability to the franchise by helping guide them to a .500 or better record in each of the last five years with a pair of Northwest division titles and 50-win seasons.
Magic interested in the Blazers’ Terry Stotts if he becomes available
