It’s safe to say new Thunder coach Billy Donovan will stay in the NBA this time. Donovan jokes that he has coached in the league before – eight years ago, he was hired by the Orlando Magic, only to change his mind the following day and return to the University of Florida. He said that decision had nothing to do with the Magic, and that it was more about his relationships with his family and Florida.
