The Orlando Magic have named Jamahl Mosley the team’s new head coach.

Mosley, a Dallas Mavericks assistant, has agreed to a four-year deal, sources told ESPN.

The Magic are replacing Steve Clifford, who mutually parted with the team last month. Orlando had reached the playoffs in consecutive years before trade deadline deals including All-Star Nikola Vucevic (Chicago) and Evan Fournier (Boston) this season moved them into rebuilding mode.

The Magic’s search process had narrowed to two candidates, Mosley and Denver assistant Wes Unseld Jr., who has also emerged as one of the leading candidates for the Washington Wizards‘ vacancy, sources said earlier this week.
