Vogel, 42, wasn't retained by the Indiana Pacers after spending the previous five-plus season as coach of the franchise. He went 250-181 in the regular season and made five playoff appearances.

The Memphis Grizzlies were highly interested in Vogel's services. The Houston Rockets and New York Knicks also had interest.

Orlando also interview assistant coach Adrian Griffin for the post. Griffin was Skiles' lead assistant.
