CELTICS WORKING ON A MULTIYEAR DEAL TO KEEP RIVERS
Fri, 13 May 2011 06:19 PM EDT

The Boston Celtics are running on a contract deal with coach Doc Rivers that would bring him back for another run at an NBA championship. The deal also includes the aging Big Three, and the main idea is to keep Doc on the bench to work with the rebuilt roster that is expected to follow. The two sides are nearing agreement on a deal for more than two or three years. Odds.

Rivers had publicly expressed his aspiration to continue coaching this squad and he believes they can contend and yet make another run to a title. He has told the players after being eliminated from the playoffs on Wednesday night that he would return. Rivers’ commitment is the biggest sign that Ainge will carry on with the core of the team that won the 2008 title and came back to the to another finals series in 2010, losing in seven games to the Lakers. Basketball scores.

“If we’re moving forward next year and trying to win a championship, he’s one of the main pieces,” captain Paul Pierce said. Pierce, a career Celtic is signed for three more years; he will turn 34 before the 2011-12 season opener. The explosive Kevin Garnett, who turns 35 next week, has one more year on his deal. And the sharpshooter Ray Allen will turn 36 this summer and then enter the final year of his contract.

Pierce expects change. “I know it’s going to look different. I know that for a fact,” Pierce said. “I don’t know what, but we’ll have to wait and see.” In the end the Celtics have most of its core under contract, so their main guys appear to be on the list for next year’s contention.
