John Gabriel is an executive in the National Basketball Association who is currently serving as the new director of scouting for the New York Knicks. He was previously a scout and administrator for the Portland Trail Blazers, and he is best known for his stint as general manager with the Orlando Magic. During that time (1999—2003), he won the NBA's Executive of the Year award, only to be dismissed in the beginning of the 2003 season.

Gabriel won the 1999 NBA Executive of the Year Award after dismantling the previous year's team and trading players for future draft picks. With Darrell Armstrong leading the team, the Magic compiled a respectable 41-41 win-loss record and barely missed the playoffs. Gabriel won the award because the team was composed of virtually non-notable players, and most expertswho had predicted the team to falter. In addition, Gabriel hired Doc Rivers as head coach of the Magic at the beginning of that season. Seen as a risky move by most expertswho, Rivers guided the team well and won Coach of the Year honors.

The following season, with millions in salary cap space, the Magic, led by Gabriel, pursued free agents Grant Hill, Tim Duncan, and Tracy McGrady. Ultimately, Hill and McGrady came to Orlando while Duncan decided to stay with the San Antonio Spurs. In addition, Gabriel is also known for drafting Mike Miller, who would later become Rookie of the Year.

In the 2003-04 NBA season, however, Gabriel was fired by the Magic in the middle of a franchise record 19-game losing streak. Gabriel returned to basketball in the NBA as an executive and scout.

In 2005, Gabriel, who is allergic to bee stings, suffered a near-death experience after being stung by a swarm of bees outside his Winter Park, Florida home. Gabriel, though, eventually fully recovered.
