Rumours swirling around Van Gundy’s future
The seemingly endless drama in Magic-land is continuing, with rumours that recently resigned Dwight Howard has demanded that long time coach Stan Van Gundy be fired.
In yet another twist, both parties have denied any knowledge of the rumour. Whether this is a media creation or not, it is really necessary for this to be played out in public?
Many believe this to be a more or less done deal, with Van Gundy expected to be out. However one unnamed player still thinks that Van Gundy will be around next season.
In a franchise defining season next season, with the Magic trying to survive another year of Dwight drama, the last thing the Magic need is another distraction. They need a stable platform to build off, and losing a coach at the start of the season will not help.
Unless this is what Dwight wants. In which case, no other person is more important to this franchise, and management should bend to accommodate him
