Doc Rivers' preference is to remain an NBA coach next season, but not for a team going through a rebuilding phase as is expected with the Boston Celtics. "He wants another championship or at least another chance at it," a source close to Rivers said. "He doesn't want to go through a rebuilding process." Rivers also would entertain the notion of returning to broadcasting, where he would instantly become one of the most coveted analysts for the NBA. Rivers met with Danny Ainge on Wednesday without a resolution being reached.
