It's unclear what role Matt Lloyd, who has been the interim general manager since Hennigan was sacked, will have with the team going forward. The Magic have scheduled a news conference on Wednesday to introduce Weltman. With the growing demand on basketball operations, a new organizational structure and greater investment was needed.
The Magic will hope that Weltman can help them bring a steady hand to an organization that has been on a wayward path since the departure of Dwight Howard. We wish John and his family nothing but the best in Orlando.
A person familiar with the negotiations says the Orlando Magic have agreed to hire Toronto general manager Jeff Weltman as the new president of basketball operations.

Orlando's interim general manager Matt Lloyd is expected to remain in the organization.
Like with all of Toronto's moves since the summer of 2013, Weltman was heavily involved in the deal sending Terrence Ross and a first-round pick to Orlando in February in exchange for Serge Ibaka. The Nuggets won 49 games in 2004-05, the fourth-most since the franchise joined the National Basketball Association in 1976. Weltman had previously worked for the Bucks, Pistons and Clippers earlier in his career. Hammond has been after lengthy, versatile players for the Bucks over the past few years in Milwaukee, and it will be interesting to see if he takes a similar approach in Orlando. The Raptors have enjoyed an unparalleled run of success in franchise history over the past four seasons, qualifying for the postseason four times and winning three playoff series.
His late father, Harry Weltman, served as GM of the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Spirits of St. Louis of the American Basketball Association.
