Dwight Howard’s alleged usurpation could be a boon for quite a few NBA players, including more than one member of the Orlando Magic.

Howard denies that he called for Stan Van Gundy’s ouster. GM Otis Smith has claimed basically the same.

Stan Van Gundy, who’s been through this before, hasn’t changed his story whatsoever.

No matter the truth, either Dwight is now leaving, Stan Van Gundy is gone or they’re BOTH out the door.

As the winds of change begin to blow harder in Orlando, potential trade partners must be smiling. They surely sense the Magic’s asking price dropping for their superstar center.

Sure, Howard did extend his deal for one more year. Yet, future free agency partners must be excited that Dwight could be joining them sooner rather than later.

Divisional foes and potential playoff opponents must also enjoy seeing the Magic’s internal struggles limit them as a postseason threat.

Bleacher Report’s Joel C. Cordes also explains how this public relations fiasco could even benefit Stan Van Gundy and Dwight Howard.
