Billy Donovan and OKC parting ways.
Woj:

quote:

ESPN Sources: Oklahoma City coach Billy Donovan won’t be returning to the Thunder next season. Donovan’s contract expired at season’s end and the sides have decided against pursuing an extension.


Has to be #1 choice. It’s unlikely he would want to come here given the amount of control this FO would want to exert.

But if all things are equal. He is the guy. He’s a damn good coach imo.

re: Billy Donovan and OKC parting ways.
Now that is a firing I didn't see coming.

Is OKC just pinching pennies that don't need to and shouldn't be again? Because that team overproduced this season by anyone's expectations.

OKC is in full rebuild mode.

re: Billy Donovan and OKC parting ways.
He wasn’t fired. His contract was up.

FYI, this is OKC’s MO. They allow coaches to coach out their contract and then either extend or move on.

This was a terribly held secret. I heard two podcasts discussing it in the past couple of weeks.

Not a whisper about the Pels up to this point. You have to think we at least were waiting to interview him

re: Billy Donovan and OKC parting ways.
He likely doesn’t want to be part of what will likely soon be a multi year rebuild from scratch In OKC.

It would make me wonder what job he would see as better than us?

Pacers? Rockets? 76ers?

his contract was up and they’re in a Complete rebuild this offseason. Billy doesn’t want to be a part of that and I’m sure the Thunder are ready to move on as well

Not exactly. SGA keeps developing and they get anything for CP and they're still pretty decent with plentiful future assets.

Seems the most plausible(but not necessarily the only explanation), definitely seems like one to really keep an eye on.

I could see him taking the rockets job. Especially if Russ is an advocate for him
