    If Donovan Takes the Thunder Job....

    Where does Florida turn?

    Do they "promote" newly hired assistant Anthony Grant?

    Archie Miller? Chris Mack?

    How is he an idiot?

    He'd be coaching a team with Westbrook, Ibaka, and Durant. Possibly Enes Kanter or DeAndre Jordan too.

    He's going to make a boat load of money and get handed a team with 2 of the best players in the NBA. Or he could stay at Florida where he's under appreciated and they don't really give a crap about basketball.

    Heard a couple of NBA "insiders" say that Ollie not taking the job indicates KD isn't long for OKC.

    And if he fails at OKC he'll still have his pick of almost any college job when he returns.

    Does anybody think that when the time comes for Cal to move on, Donovan will be the Cats' next coach?

    I suspect his named will be mentioned. I'd imagine timing will play a big factor, too. If Donovan goes to OKC then Cal were to leave after next year (hypothetical), then Donovan isn't coming. But if Donovan goes to the NBA and does okay but not great and Cal leaves in six years, then I could maybe see it happening.

    The name being thrown around most is Archie Miller.
