Donovan Officially Released from Magic Contract

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The Orlando Magic finally released Billy Donovan from his contract late Wednesday night.

The team would not explain any details of the agreement. They did release a statement that said:

"As our signing of Billy Donovan showed, we are committed to winning a championship. We have the legal right to hold Billy to the contract he signed, but with him having a change of heart about leaving college basketball, we want him at the University of Florida. We have granted him permission to break his commitment and return to the Gators."
