On April 16, Adrian Wojnarowski reported sources around the league believe Brooks is in danger after the Thunder missed the playoffs. He also noted a popular college coach could become the leading candidate if the team decides to go in another direction:
If a change comes, University of Florida coach Billy Donovan could emerge as a serious candidate to coach Oklahoma City, league sources said. [Thunder general manager Sam] Presti has a longstanding friendship with Donovan, a two-time national championship coach who has been open about his interest in moving to the NBA.
