The Magic narrowed down their candidates to Mosley and Denver Nuggets assistant Wes Unseld Jr., who has emerged as one of the leading candidates to take over in Washington, per the report. Mosley is also in the running for the Wizards' post, according to ESPN.

It would be the first head coaching job for the 42-year-old Mosley.

The Magic and Steve Clifford mutually parted ways last month after finishing 21-51 in 2020-21. Clifford compiled a 96-131 record in three seasons in Orlando.

Mosley has been an assistant to Rick Carlisle the past seven years in Dallas. He's also had stints as an assistant in Cleveland (2010-14) and Denver (2005-10).

Mosley played collegiately at Colorado, averaging 11.4 points per game in 103 contests (79 starts) from 1997-2001.
