Billy Donovan Rumors
As for Donovan, it’s worth remembering that Presti came up with the San Antonio Spurs as a scout. That means he understands the value of longevity, having seen the fruits of Gregg Popovich’s labor up close and learned how much stability matters. So despite the subpar results, and even with nuanced factors like the presence of an assistant coach in Adrian Griffin who has been in the running for head coaching jobs and who has also formed a productive bond with George, all signs point to Oklahoma City staying the course.
“The respect level is high. No one’s going against Billy,” George said. “He’s given us an incredible game plan all season long. There’s a high level of respect for his position and what he’s wanting from us. There’s no line of disrespect at all toward what Coach wants us to do.”
