New Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan made his first hire Monday, bringing Scott Perry to Orlando from the Detroit Pistons, according to league sources.

Perry, who will be the Magic's assistant general manager, had worked with the Pistons for the past four years under Joe Dumars as the club's vice president of basketball operations.

The Magic introduced Hennigan, 30, on Thursday and gave him the task of reversing the fortunes of an NBA franchise that has been slipping since reaching the NBA Finals three years ago.

Hennigan replaced Otis Smith, who was fired May 21 along with coach Stan Van Gundy.
