With Doc honoring the final year of his contract, it looks like the Celtics are a step closer to putting together one final push for a Title. From the Boston Herald: ” 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. Rivers was seriously considering a sabbatical from coaching on the grounds that a break would allow him to spend time with his family after six years apart coaching the Celts.”
