Both Phil Jackson and Doc Rivers had to make decisions regarding if they wanted to come back for the 2011 season.
Jackson has health issues and Rivers had family concerns, but according to the Boston Herald the Celtics family has won out in regard to Rivers. Here are the details:
Doc Rivers is not opting out.
The Celtic coach will be returning to the club for at least the remaining season on his contract, a source close to Rivers indicated moments ago.
I think if Doc does stay it becomes extremely unlikely that Paul Pierce leaves and it increases the chances of Ray Allen coming back.
Good news for Celtics fans.
