The following statement has been issued by the Orlando Magic:
While Central Florida, the Orlando Magic and Billy were energized with the announcement of his contract signing on Friday, we know there was a different feeling in Gainesville and people have been tugging at him since that time.
Billy is conflicted with those emotions and the opportunity he has ahead in Orlando and in the NBA.
We've had numerous conversations and a personal visit in Gainesville with Billy over the last 48 hours and we have a commitment from him that the dialogue between us will continue. "
