Donovan to the NBA?
According to the Orlando Sentinel, the Orlando Magic have offered Florida head coach Billy Donovan a contract to become the next coach of their franchise. Pat Forde of ESPN.com reports that the contract is worth $36 million over six years. Donovan had reportedly been offered a contract by the Gators that would pay him about $3 million per year. League sources said that the Magic had asked to talk to Donovan’s agent on Tuesday, but Donovan said on Wednesday that he had not made contact with the Magic. Donovan has led Florida to back-to-back national championships in the past two seasons.
