Orlando Magic make Billy Donovan an offer

From the Orlando Sentinel-

The Orlando Magic have made a whopping offer Thursday morning to Florida Gators basketball coach Billy Donovan, sources close to the situation told the Orlando Sentinel.

The Magic expect Donovan to accept the offer to replace Brian Hill as the head coach by the end of the week.

Donovan, 42, led the Gators to back-to-back NCAA titles.

I don’t know. There is a mighty large difference between coaching college and the pros. Donovan could be successful in the NBA, but the egos a coach has to endure may not be worth it, or the fact that Orlando has been a pretty hapless franchise for most of its history. On the other hand how much more can Donovan due at UF after winning back to back national titles?

My prediction- Donovan stays put.
