Billy Donovan: How I Got To The NBA
OKLAHOMA CITY - Billy Donovan certainly picked a good situation to step into. The first-year NBA coach gets to coach two All-NBA players and has a deep bench. Health-pending, his team will be right there at the end of the season, contending for a title.
Although Donovan coached his first NBA game the other night, it's not the first job in the pros he's taken. He notoriously accepted the Orlando Magic head coaching position in 2007 only to have second thoughts and return to Florida. Friday, Donovan talked about the transition process and about other jobs he was offered while at Florida.
