Billy Donovan will not continue with the Oklahoma City Thunder, with the veteran coach deciding to not renew his contract.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Chicago Bulls, who parted ways with Jim Boylen a few weeks ago, expected to show interest on the -now-former OKC coach.

The Bulls enter a renovation face on their FO personnel during this summer, appointing Arturas Karnisovas on the president role and Marc Eversley on the general manager vacancy.

As ESPN is reporting, Chicago is just ‘completing a first round of interviews with several candidates’. Donovan ended the season with a limit-up as he led OKC to the playoffs.

With Chris Paul as the leader, the Thunder took the Houston Rockets to seven games and got one shot away from the WC semifinals.
