Magic Coach Stan Van Gundy just got fired, and General Manager Otis Smith resigned according to the Orlando Magic's website:

Orlando Magic Chief Executive Officer Alex Martins announced today that Stan Van Gundy has been relieved of his duties as head coach. In addition President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Otis Smith and the organization have mutually agreed to part ways. 
 
"On behalf of the DeVos Family, we sincerely appreciate and thank Otis and Stan for all that they have done on and off the floor for the Orlando Magic,” said Martins. "These are the days you dread in this business, but we feel it's time for new leadership and new voices. 
 
We all saw this coming, after all the issues that Dwight Howard had with Stan Van Gundy. Since Howard is going to be a Magic for at least one more year, it was necessary for the Magic to get rid of Van Gundy, and find a new coach for their superstar. It's clear that the Magic wanted to clear up management, after Smith "resigned" from the franchise.
