The Oklahoma City Thunder hired Florida's Billy Donovan as their new coach.
The Thunder made the announcement Thursday.
The 49-year-old Donovan led Florida to two national championships, four Final Fours, seven Elite Eights, and 14 NCAA tournament berths in 19 years. He signed a one-year contract extension with the Gators in December that would have paid him an average salary of $4 million through 2020.
Donovan inherits a team with 2013-14 MVP Kevin Durant and 2014-15 scoring champion Russell Westbrook.
He replaces Scott Brooks, who was fired last week.
Wiggins top rookie
The Minnesota Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins was named the NBA rookie of the year.
After coming to the Timberwolves in the trade that sent Kevin Love to Cleveland, Wiggins averaged 16.9 points and 4.6 rebounds while playing all 82 games in his first season.
Wiggins was drafted No. 1 overall by the Cavaliers last summer.
Wiggins received 110 first-place votes and 604 total points in the voting. Chicago's Nikola Mirotic finished second and the 76ers' Nerlens Noel was third.
Bulls 120, Bucks 66 - Chicago eliminated host Milwaukee emphatically, 4 games to 2, with a 54-point Game 6 rout. Mike Dunleavy's 20 points led five Bulls in double figures.
Zaza Pachulia led Milwaukee with eight points.
