Magic CEO Alex Martins announced the contract extensions on Friday. Both contracts will now run through the 2015-16 season. Terms of the deals were not released.

"Rob and Jacque have worked extremely hard in establishing a culture which embodies teamwork, hard work, hunger for success and humility," Martins said in a statement. "With their strategic direction and leadership we feel we are headed in the right direction, which will allow us to achieve our goals of contending in a long-term, sustainable fashion."

Hennigan was named the team's GM in June 2012, and Vaughn became the team's 10th coach when he was hired the next month.

The Magic finished 23-59 this season. The team has two lottery picks in the upcoming draft.
