Jackie MacMullan went on ESPN last night and said she expects Boston to hire a young (and cheap) up and comer to replace Doc Rivers, rather than an established veteran. Gary Washburn reiterated the same thing on Sportscenter this morning. Yesterday Adrian Wojnarowski wrote that Doc is likely taking his assistants Tyronn Lue and Kevin Eastman to LA with him, and in today's Boston Globe Baxter Holmes quoted a "league source" who said:
“I think they do have to go young, and Danny [Ainge] is going to want to look like a genius. Brian Shaw is what I think they’d hire, but I don’t know. Danny might go outside the box a little.”
Well, if Ainge wants to go way outside the box, "Employee #8" has made it known that he is available (Antoine actually sent out 3 tweets of this variety late last night):
Boston fans its time for me to be the celtics coach !!!!
