You’re Billy Donovan.

A year ago you were given the best NBA job a college coach has ever received. You left the University of Florida for a five-year contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder. You were entrusted with two superstars: Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

Now, one of them is gone and the other is entering a contract year.

What do you do?

The shockwaves created by Durant joining the Golden State Warriors will be felt in the NBA for years to come. The seismic wave could even trickle down to the college game. Donovan didn’t sign up for this. He didn’t go into the OKC job expecting this team could be on the brink of collapse a year later.

Durant has left the building. Westbrook could bolt next summer. Don’t be surprised if Donovan sprints out the door, too.
