Sure sounds more and more like Doc is coming back and perhaps for a long time.

A person with knowledge of the negotiations says the Boston Celtics [team stats] and coach Doc Rivers are working on a deal that would keep him on their bench for multiple years. The deal is for "more than two or three years," the person told The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the details were still being worked out.

Danny shed some light on Doc's attitude.

WEEI: Ainge reflects on season, future

"If there comes a time where our goal change in a year or two, where the goal is to make the playoffs, I think Doc would welcome that challenge too. He knows that every year of your career, you can't be fighting for an NBA championship.

"I think he likes the idea of being a Jerry Sloan type coach and being with a franchise for a long time."

Works for me.
