Stan Van Gundy is finally officially gone from the Orlando Magic, and he is clearly one of the best coaches available on the market. However, the potential coaching pool is very deep this year, with many viable candidates for many open jobs.

The fact that Van Gundy could make it work with Howard as long as he did is a testament to his hard work as well.
