Report: Cavs Reach Out to Billy Donovan
Could Florida head coach Billy Donovan be on the move? Earlier today, news was swirling about Billy Donovan talking to NBA teams again when he had this to say:
“I have spoken to a couple NBA teams, and that’s all I’m going to say,” Donovan said. “It’s always flattering, but at the same time, I’ve always said that I’m very happy here and like it here.”
Now ESPN sources are saying that the Cleveland Cavaliers are one of the teams that reached out to Donovan:
The Cleveland Cavaliers have contacted Florida coach Billy Donovan about their coaching vacancy, sources told ESPN.com.
I like this line of thinking for the Cavs. They have a young team and have another #1 pick, so a college coach could be the route to go. It remains to be seen in the Cleveland job is the one to lure Billy out of Gainesville.
