ORLANDO, Fla. -

Local 6 Sports Director David Pingalore has learned Friday that former Toronto Raptors head coach Butch Carter interviewed with the Magic for the assistant head coaching job.

Despite the Magic not having a head coach hired yet, the franchise is looking for coaches to join the staff once the position is filled.

The sources added this is the way the Magic have decided to go about as they are looking to hire a first year head coach.

In most cases, the head coach will have all the say in hiring assistants.

Pingalore was told that Carter is in play to be an assistant on the staff.
