Thun­der GM: Coach Dono­van to re­turn

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - LEADING OFF -

OK­LA­HOMA CITY >> Thun­der gen­eral man­ager Sam Presti said coach Billy Dono­van’s job is safe, de­spite a dis­ap­point­ing sea­son.

Ok­la­homa City had high ex­pec­ta­tions this sea­son af­ter trad­ing for Paul Ge­orge and Carmelo An­thony to join reign­ing MVP Rus­sell West­brook. Even with the added star power, the Thun­der won just one more reg­u­lar-sea­son game than last year and lost in the first round of the play­offs to Utah. Presti says he was dis­ap­pointed. Ge­orge also could leave in free agency.

Dono­van has a 150-96 ca­reer reg­u­lar-sea­son record (.610) with the Thun­der.
