Doc Rivers Is Coming Back!

Doc is coming back (hopefully to the Finals again too)

This could be the first critical piece to getting the gang back together again.

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.

The Celtics reworked the final year of Rivers’ contract with a raise from the $5.5 million he was owed, sources said, but Rivers wasn’t ready to commit to a contract extension. Rivers will turn his attention to recruiting Celtics free agents Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, and league sources said he’s focused on hiring former New Jersey Nets coach Lawrence Frank to replace assistant Tom Thibodeau, who left to coach the Chicago Bulls.

Frank would be a great replacement for Thibodeau.
