Report: Dwight Howard Wants Stan Van Gundy Gone

Sources close to the Orlando Magic and the NBA have told WKMG Orlando that Dwight Howard wants head coach Stan Van Gundy out.

According to the station’s sports director, David Pingalore, sources claim that talk has been “amping” up in recent weeks and that the probability of Van Gundy being released from his final contract year is very high.

Pingalore claims that, according to a league source, Howard has been telling team owners  to change the coaching staff and that the Magic are already planning to make the move as per Howard’s demand.  Although Magic owner Rich DeVos has denied that Howard does has the power to make those kind of demands, DeVos did tell Pingalore that “We [owners] will make those, but we will let him know what we are making and want his opinion on what fits and doesn’t fit.”

Despite Howard’s pre-season demand to either be traded or be surrounded by better players in order to win a championship, Howard waived his right to opt-out this summer, meaning he will stay with the team through at least next season. Under Van Gundy the Magic are in playoff position with a 32-22 record, standing in the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference.  This season, Howard is averaging 20.9 points and 14.5 rebounds per game.
