Just heard this on ESPN Sportscenter. Of course Doc won a Coach of the Year award in Orlando and still makes his home there. I don't blame the Magic for pursuing Doc. You probably can convince Dwight Howard to stay in Orlando with Doc on board. That said, Doc recently signed a multi year deal to continue as coach of the Boston Celtics, so I'd be very surprised if he left Boston, even if Orlando is home to him.

Again, can't blame the Magic for thinking outside the box here (Pursuing a coach already under contract. The Magic are also reportedly meeting with Shaq about their vacant GM job), but this would be a HUGE blow to the Celtics as Doc is the #1 free agent attraction to Boston, as the team inevitably tries to rebuild this Summer. I expect Doc to dismiss this rumor tomorrow as he prepares the team for Game 7 on Saturday (Tickets available here). Doc would never let something like this distract his team.
