Billy Donovan Considering Move To NBA

Apr 2, 2015 1:43 PM

Billy Donovan is interested in leaving Florida for the NBA more than ever before, according to sources.

Donovan figures to draw interest from multiple NBA teams this offseason.

Donovan recently agreed to a one-year contract extension to stay with the Gators through the 2020 season, according to multiple media reports, but the contract contains a buyout for a mere $500,000 if an NBA opportunity arises. 


Donovan rejected serious interest from the Minnesota Timberwolves and Cleveland Cavaliers last offseason.

The Denver Nuggets and Orlando Magic currently employ interim coaches and both are expected to have Donovan on their list of targets.

No longer is Donovan barred from considering NBA offers as he was from 2007-08 through 2012-13, after he agreed to a noncompete clause spanning five years in exchange for being released from the contract he signed with the Magic.

Will Barton Interested In Returning To Nuggets

Mar 24, 2015 11:52 PM

Will Barton has received playing time with the Denver Nuggets and hopes to return to the team next season.

"No doubt," Barton said. "I think we can build something here. We have a lot of good talent, a good organization, coaching staff is good. I can see us building and having a strong future here. We can grow together."

The Nuggets can extend a qualifying offer to Barton after the season at what would be $1.1 million, which would make him a restricted free agent.

Al Harrington Retires, Joins Nuggets' Staff For Rest Of Season

Mar 19, 2015 1:21 AM

Al Harrington said he is retired from the NBA following a 16-year career and has started to assist the Denver Nuggets' coaching staff.

"I'm officially retired," Harrington said. "I don't know if there's paperwork that I gotta fill out or anything. But my career is over.

"I'm very happy with what I was able to accomplish. I was able to change a lot of people's lives in my family, including myself in a game that I eventually fell in love with and will always be in love with. And hopefully I can stay around the game until I die. It was a fun ride. It went by fast, too. It was like one minute I was 18, the next I was 25 then was 30 and now I'm 35. It was a fun run. Met a lot of great people."

Harrington was best known for his days playing with the Indiana Pacers and spent two seasons with the Nuggets. He played in China this season.

Nuggets To Consider Melvin Hunt As Permanent Head Coach

Mar 17, 2015 6:00 PM

"As an organization, we have all been impressed with the job Melvin has done thus far," Tim Connelly said. "When the season concludes, he will be one of the candidates as we begin an exhaustive search to find a head coach."

The Nuggets fired Brian Shaw this season and are 6-3 under Hunt.

Mike D'Antoni Interested In Nuggets' Job

Mar 3, 2015 1:20 PM

Mike D'Antoni has interest in becoming head coach of the Denver Nuggets.

D'Antoni hasn't coached since he was fired by the Los Angeles Lakers following the 13-14 season.

D'Antoni's first head coaching job in the NBA was with the Nuggets.

D'Antoni's fastpaced system on offense would presumably give the Nuggets a strong homecourt advantage due to the altitude of Denver.
