Donnie Nelson and the front office are not good at their job. Drafting Dirk and Luka almost 20 years a part is nothing to be congratulated for. They were extremely lucky with Dirk that he didn't bolt. Luka will if they get it together.

Donnie got his job due to business and family connections. It's not something he actually applied and got an interview for. That method rarely gets you quality stuff. And it shows.

Donnie is holding blackmail material over on Cubes.
How else do you explain how he hasn't been fired?
