The Thunder have exercised the fifth-year option on head coach Billy Donovan‘s contract, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. This locks up the former Gator Head Coach thru 2020.
Since being hired by the Thunder in 2015, Donovan has put together a 168-106 regular-season record, leading the club to three consecutive playoff appearances.
Donovan, Steve Kerr and Gregg Popovich are the three NBA head coaches that have the most wins with a single team since in 2015.
Oklahoma City reached the Western Conference Finals in Donovan’s first season, but has been eliminated in the first round in each of the two years since then.
