i It looks like Billy Donovan may actually leave Florida. According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Donovan and Oklahoma City Thunder GM Sam Presti have started formal talks about him taking the head coaching position a week after the Thunder dismissed Scott Brooks. Presti and Donovan go way back, and Stein points out that over the past year, Presti has hired two members of Donovan's staff at Florida for the Thunder organization: Mark Daigneault as coach of the Thunder's D-League team and Oliver Winterbone as a data analyst. Over the years, there have been that reports Donovan has grown increasingly frustrated with the Florida athletic department over renovating the O-Dome and wants another shot at the NBA. Of course, Donovan had one with the Orlando Magic in 2007, but decided to come back to Florida almost immediately after taking the job. So long Billy? [ESPN]
