Florida's Donovan spoke to a couple of NBA teams

Posted: Updated:

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida's Billy Donovan has spoken to a couple of NBA teams about coaching vacancies, but adds that "I fully plan on being back" next season.

Donovan declined to specify which teams called - Detroit, Golden State, the Los Angeles Lakers, Minnesota, New York and Utah had openings - and jokingly cited his brief stint with the NBA's Orlando Magic in 2007 as reason for keeping details private.

Donovan says, "I'm not going to get into, 'He's lying. He's not being truthful.' I got a couple of calls. That's all it is."

Donovan just finished his 18th season at Florida, where he has two national championships and four Final Four appearances.

He says NBA interest in "always flattering," but adds that "I'm very happy here and like it here."
