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.
``As our signing of Billy Donovan showed, we are committed to winning a championship,'' the Magic said in a statement. ``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.''
