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 fact Rivers is staying on would seem to be an encouraging sign that the Celtics’ main players will also be back for another season.
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.
"I'm coming back," he said in a text message. "I want another crack at it with this group."
Thank you, Doc!!!
More to come…
