Additionally, Henry Domercant, Ronnie Burrell, Ty Abbott and Max Rothschild were brought on as player development coordinators.
Donovan and Karnisovas will collaborate to put together the rest of his assistant coaching staff. Some potential names to keep in mind include Mark Daigneault and Billy Schmidt, who worked with Donovan at the University of Florida and in Oklahoma City. Another Thunder coach who could be a candidate to join Donovan’s staff in Chicago is Dave Bliss. Outside of Oklahoma City, keep an eye on Royal Ivey, who’s currently under contract with the Knicks. Several teams have expressed interest in Ivey and believe New York would allow him out of his contract as SNY reported. “It’s a great spot,” one Western Conference coachtold HoopsHype. “I like their position. They’ve got to hit on that fourth pick, but you’ve got some talent at least.”
