Billy Talk? Silly Talk! 

Among the rumored destinations of one Billy Donovan — head coach of the two-time national champion Florida Gators — is Memphis, where an NBA coaching vacancy awaits at season’s end. But SI.com’s Ian Thomsen offers fair warning to Grizzly fans enamored with the “hot college coach.”

Writes Thomsen: "Donovan to the Memphis Grizzlies is another ongoing rumor. The last time I checked, Jerry West was still running the Grizzlies. Unless a brick from a crumbling tenement lands on West's head to make him forget everything he knows about the NBA, I can't imagine him hiring a head coach with zero NBA experience."
