ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Orlando Magic are offering refunds to fans who bought season tickets just after Billy Donovan's hiring.

More than 200 packages sold within 24 hours of the announcement that the Magic had lured Donovan away from Florida, where he won two straight NCAA titles. Donovan changed his mind a day after his May 31 introduction, deciding to return to the Gators.

The Magic said they were contacting individual fans who bought tickets within 48 hours of the Donovan announcement. So far some have decided to keep the tickets, the team said without specifying an amount.

Orlando let Donovan out of the deal after several days of legal wrangling and hired former Miami Heat coach Stan Van Gundy to replace him.
