UPDATE: The deal is worth $35 million. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Doc is now the highest paid coach in the league.
Rivers made $7.8 million over his 11 year playing career. By the end of this deal, he will have made upwards of $50-60 million.
With 7 season at the helm of the Celtics, Doc has the third longest coaching tenure in franchise history. He trails Red Auerbaach (16 years) and Tommy Heinsohn (9 years).
Don't know what the final details are… but this is damn good news. This takes away a huge question mark. It also means Doc will be here to bridge the gap between the new Big 3 era and the Rondo era.
