Ainge to Meet Rivers About Celtics Future

After living with uncertainty about their coach since the night the team was eliminated from the playoffs, the Celtics will hope to gain a better understanding when Doc Rivers meets tomorrow with Danny Ainge. According to a league source, Rivers hopes after that discussion to make his first public comments regarding his future since saying on May 3rd that he was uncertain if he would be on the Celtic bench for the 2013-14 season. Now the Celtics and Rivers must decide whether it is realistic for him to stay with the club after expressing interest in another job.
”I don’t know if anything will be decided tomorrow or if anything will be resolved,” said Ainge, the Celtics’ president of basketball operations. “I just know that I’m meeting with him.”
The discussion will come a day after talks broke down on complementary deals that would have allowed Rivers out of the remaining three years on his Celtic contract so he could coach the Clippers, sending Kevin Garnett to the same club in a separate but related move. In return, the C’s were looking to get a combination of players and draft picks, but the Clippers backed away some time this morning.
