Doc Rivers to Talk About Future With Team Today
According to a story courtesy Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, Celtics coach Doc Rivers, is set to hold talks with the team about his future after the potential deal with the Los Angeles Clippers broke down.
According to a league source, Rivers hopes after that discussion to make his first public comments regarding his future since saying on May 3rd that he was uncertain if he would be on the Celtic bench for the 2013-14 season.
“I am meeting with Doc tomorrow [today],” Ainge confirmed to the Herald. “He’s coming to town. He was coming to town before the events of today, so we were planning on meeting tomorrow anyway.”
“I don’t know if anything will be decided tomorrow or if anything will be resolved,” said Ainge, the Celtics’ president of basketball operations. “I just know that I’m meeting with him.”
It would appear from the outside that the damage to the relationship between Rivers and the organization along with the fan base, has already been done. But Ainge has said on multiple occasions that he still wants Rivers back as coach, so it would seem the decision to return lies with Doc.
