After a disappointing season with the New York Knicks, Mike D'Antoni is looking for his next head coaching position. Could it be in Orlando?
The Orlando Magic have had a lot of turmoil in their front office this season, and that could culminate in the organization ultimately parting ways with head coach Stan Van Gundy and GM Otis Smith. Now, it seems a little premature to start talking about potential replacements for guys who haven't even been fired yet, but that's where we are. It looks like Mike D'Antoni is one of the names that could be linked to the Magic this Summer.
Hearing whispers that Mike D'Antoni would be very interested in a vacant Magic coaching job.— Brian K. Schmitz (@MagicInsider) May 11, 2012
Of course, there is no word here on whether or not the Magic would be interested in D'Antoni, but it should not be surprising that D'Anotni would have interest in any available job. He is unemployed after all. Then again, we have to wait for Stan Van Gundy to clear out his office before we talk about filling it.
