This summer, the team is going to have to decide on Doc Rivers.Â (Herald)
Rivers shrugged and added, â€œYou donâ€™t want to be in this position, but weâ€™re in it and we should take advantage of it. Weâ€™re not going to just play out the season; weâ€™re working on stuff.â€
The whole premise of him testing out ideas for next season obviously begs the question of whether he will be here.
â€œIâ€™ve never worried about that,â€ Rivers said. â€œI think that was more from the outside. A couple of fans in a couple of paper bags; other than that, itâ€™s been pretty good.â€
In that next season is the last on his contract, Rivers has stated that heâ€™ll talk to the Celtics about an extension this summer. While he didnâ€™t state flat-out that heâ€™d leave rather than stay on as a lame duck, itâ€™s fair to believe he doesnâ€™t want to be in that situation.
If he doesn't get an extension, will he walk away?
