One week ago, in a shocking move, the Oklahoma City Thunder fired head coach Scott Brooks, who was very successful in his seven years as coach.
Books led them to the playoffs in six of those seven years and even one NBA Finals Appereance in 2012. The Thunder struggled alot this year mainly because of the injuries to Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. Durant only played 27 games this season due to a foot injury and Westbrook played in 67 of the 82 games this season.
The question is who will take the best head coaching job available, which, of course, is the Oklahoma City Thunder. Many believe head coach Billy Donovan will take that head coaching postion. Sources say that this is the highest level of interest Donovan has had for the NBA. Donovan has a 467-186 record at Florida and has 16 straight 20-win seasons there. He also has been to the Final Four four times and is one of four active college head coaches with multiple NCAA titles.
He has recently hired former Alabama head coach Anthony Grant and he can easily take him to the NBA with him. Donovan says he would like to meet with Kevin Durant Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka before he makes his descion about coaching the Thunder. There is a very good chance this deal could be done before Thursday. I believe that he will take the job and do very well for the Thunder and I expect the Thunder to be a title contender once again next season
