Multiple sources are reporting that Florida's Billy Donovan is strongly leaning towards taking the head coaching job with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Per ESPN:
Sources told ESPN.com on Wednesday that Donovan has left little doubt he's seriously interested in the prospect of making the move now to the NBA to succeed Scott Brooks, who was ousted by the Thunder one week ago after a trip to the NBA Finals and two other trips to the Western Conference finals in his seven seasons as Thunder coach.
ESPN.com first reported early Wednesday that the Thunder had formally opened an advanced dialogue about their vacant coaching job with Donovan, who has been widely tipped as the favorite to succeed Brooks from the moment the job opened.
