About midway through the season rumors began to circulate that Dwight Howard wanted Stan Van Gundy out as head coach of the Orlando Magic, and that his return to the team next year would be unlikely. We all remember that whole awkward moment with Dwight Howard earlier this year. For those of you who are bothering with guessing about Stan Van Gundy's future, don't bother bothering Stan Van with it.
Stan Van Gundy: "Yeah I want to come back, but that's not up to me... As far as the speculation (about his job), I don't give a damn."— David Baumann (@DavidBaumann33) May 9, 2012
From everything we've heard throughout this year, it'd be hard to imagine that Van Gundy would be brought back into the fold. The same could be said about general manager Otis Smtih. But we won't know the fate of any of these people for sure until the offseason plays out over the coming months.
