ESPN: Billy Donovan will listen to NBA offers

According to ESPN’s Marc Stein and his top-secret league sources, Billy Donovan is interested in going back to the NBA, but this time for longer than one day.

Stein reports, “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.”

However, Rick Pitino went onĀ Mike & MikeĀ this morning and said Donovan has the urge to coach in the NBA, therefore Donovan has zero urge to coach in the NBA. It’s the Law of Pitino-Speak.

The Denver Nuggets and Orlando Magic are two teams reported to have interest in Donovan.

    Somebody is wanting to feel some love via contract negotiations, and pretty much sees the writing on the wall. Can’t compete, go to the NBA, come back to college, say at FSU or MIAMI.
    We have seen this before.
    Got Donovan?

    Always so steadfast in his decisions.

    The media should just start reporting the exact opposite of what Pitino says. There’s a great chance of getting it right by doing it that way.

    Wonder how Billy feels about Pitino outing him. You can’t open your mouth without the media blowing everything out of proportion.

    Has the media finally decided Cal is not going anywhere and now they are going to screw with Donovan at the end of every season?

    Magic should make him an offer publicly and then pull it the next day.

    Just a hoax. Got more money from Florida as a result.
