[1]Former Orlando Magic television analyst Matt “Matty” Guokas has issued a response to Sports Talk Florida’s David Baumann in regard to the report [2] that the team declined to renew his contract. Here’s what Guokas wrote:

“While the org. has decided to go in another direction, I appreciate the opportunity that the DeVos family has given me over the years. I thank the fans, arena workers, and people that I come across around town. I am grateful for their support….Matty.”

Guokas has served as the team’s color analyst for the TV broadcasts since the 2004-05 season. He was also the inaugural head coach of the Orlando Magic from 1989-93.

Magic spokesman Joel Glass told Baumann the team has opened up a league-wide search to fill the color analyst position.
