Doc Rivers has denied a story linking him to the Orlando Magic.

A report from ESPN suggested Rivers could be a candidate to return to the Magic in a general manager/head coach capacity. Rivers began his coaching career with the Magic.

“I want to make this a place where it’s a pride of place,” Rivers said. “I haven’t accomplished that yet. And that’s my goal. That drives me, to make this a destination that people want to come to and you have pride in. I think we’ve improved it greatly, but it’s still not. … I haven’t reached my goal at all, and I’m fully aware of that.”

Rivers joined the Clippers in 2013.

"I can tell you I had a past with the Magic. I have no future [in Orlando]. My future's here."
