Wonder what the finances are for him to take on this rebuild.

No complaints here. I'm a little surprised Billy didn't wait out for that Sixers job.

I wanted Unseld Jr but I’m fine with Billy Donovan. Cool to have an established coach for the first time in a while.

I think he will get us back on track.

I think Philly fans are breathing a sigh of relief. He isn't the guy for a contender.

I also feel like OKC needed to move on from him.

in AK I trust ---

I was not anticipating a high profile hire like this --- This really bodes well for our future.

He might’ve been the best coach on the market and we landed him. That’s really impressive tbh

Awesome! Can we please, PLEASE, get Noah as an assistant coach? I'd love to have him working with our big men.
I don't know anything about college basketball. I would rather trade down/out. My Bulls big board for the 2020 Draft (as of October 26th):
1-Edwards; 2-Hayes; 3-Ball; 4-Haliburton; 5-Nesmith; 6-Williams; 7-Vassel; 8-Maxey; 9-Avdija; 10-Okongwu.

Yesssss! Donovan is a real live NBA head coach. No qualifiers. I thought his OKC teams consistently exceeded expectations. More important, he is a hot commodity who chose the Bulls.
Until the actual truth is more important to you than what you believe, you will never recognize the truth.

Great hire, IMO. A professional coach who has coached Westbrook and knows the ills of ball dominating guards.

He has both college and pro experience which is great. He has not completely failed at OKC when given some talent. Hope he can hire good specialists.

This makes me think we're making trades/signings to compete in the short-term

Hell yes! I was excited for Wes but I do feel like Donovan is a coach that a potentially big fish FA might be interested in playing for.

Now just waiting the deal.

Donovan was fine as a coach last year. Im glad we have a good vet coach as well as someone who understands and can groom young players. Its a perfect match in my opinion.
