Marc Stein with ESPN writes that Florida head coach Billy Donovan is looking to make the jump to the NBA more than ever before.

Sources told ESPN.com that Donovan is poised to draw interest from multiple NBA teams this offseason and is increasingly prepared to listen to those pitches after the Gators endured a 16-17 season in which they failed to qualify for postseason play for just the second time in Donovan's nearly two decades in Gainesville.

Donovan recently agreed to a one-year contract extension to stay with the Gators through the 2020 season, according to multiple media reports, but the contract contains a buyout for a mere $500,000 if an NBA opportunity arises.
Donovan has a 467-186 record with the Gators and won back-to-back national championships in 2005 and '06.
