Adrian Wojnarowski reports:

After winning the NBA championship, Doc Rivers and the Boston Celtics have reached agreement on a contract extension through the 2010-2011 season, a league source familiar with the deal told Yahoo! Sports.

The contract has not been signed, but Celtics officials and Rivers’ agent, Lonnie Cooper, are in the process of finishing up the paperwork, the source said.

You've got to love this closing paragraph:

Celtics GM Danny Ainge absorbed significant criticism for keeping Rivers after a 24-58 season in ’06-07, but was determined to give Rivers a significant upgrade of talent before ultimately judging him. Rivers was runner-up to the New Orleans Hornets’ Byron Scott for Coach of the Year. 

Way to go Doc!
