While covering the Las Vegas Summer League, CSNNE's Jessica Camerato caught up with New Orleans Pelicans second year guard Austin Rivers, who's averaging 19.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 3 assists through two games. Rivers had this to say about his father's departure from Boston:
Austin Rivers on Doc: "It was so tough for him to leave (the Celtics). It made him teary-eyed when he was talking about it with the family."

Regardless of whether or not you think Doc did the Celtics wrong, it should come as no surprise that it was a very difficult and emotional decision for him to make. Austin's comments are also a lot less inflammatory than what his big brother Jeremiah had to say in defense of their dad.
