GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) – A person familiar with the search says Florida coach Billy Donovan in talks with the Oklahoma City Thunder about their coaching vacancy.

The person spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday on condition of anonymity because details of the search have not been released.

The person says Donovan and Thunder general manager Sam Presti have spoken repeatedly about the job, which came open when Scott Brooks was fired last week, but that there is "still big-picture stuff" to work out before contract negotiations could begin.

Donovan did not respond to text messages or a phone call Wednesday seeking comment.

Yahoo Sports reported Donovan is "enthusiastic" about the possibility of coaching the Thunder and is seeking an annual salary around $6 million.
