Things don't have to change. Rivers could be back. Top assistant Tom
Thibodeau, who will be on the Bulls' sideline next season, will
need to be replaced, but there is growing support within the
organization for the candidacy of ex-Nets coach Lawrence Frank, a
Thibodeau-like workaholic who is respected by both Rivers and Celtics
general manager Danny Ainge, to fill his seat on the bench.
Could be one of those good, short term moves for the C's and for Frank. The C's get a capable assistant who will bust his ass for the team. Frank gets back into the ranks and, if he's an assistant under Doc, essentially auditions for the head coaching job when Doc does leave. And if the C's have another successful season, everyone rises with them and he could get consideration elsewhere if the Celtics aren't interested.
