Where Doc Rivers will coach next season, if he will at all, is still to be determined.
The latest reports have Rivers leaving Boston to either coach the L.A. Clippers or hanging up the clipboard for a bit to return to broadcasting. There's always the possibility that Rivers could come back to coach the Celtics, but as CSNNE's A. Sherrod Blakely points out, that option is getting more problematic as the days go by and the rumors continue to flow that Rivers wants to coach somewhere else.
“If Rivers does return as the C's head coach, the need for damage control will certainly be a work in progress.
But the biggest concern has to be with the locker room, especially if most of the players from last season are back.
Rivers is well known for his ability to motivate players, getting them to believe in putting the team ahead of their own individual goals and agendas.
But his tryst with the Clippers seems to contradict that feel-good, ubuntu mantra.”

BEST OF MAXIM
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
I really didn’t want to write about Doc today, but it’s unavoidable. The Celtics’ immediate future basically hinges on his decision to stay or go. Doc and Danny will be meeting today to discuss Rivers’ future...
It appears Doc Rivers won’t be coaching the Clippers any time soon. According to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Rivers isn't sure he'll be coaching the Celtics either. “Rivers is unsure about returning to the Boston Celtics as coach,” Wojnarowski reported, citing league sources. The Celtics, however, apparently still want Rivers back to fulfill the remaining three...
The Knicks had a very promising season, largely in part due to the fact that Mike Woodson led his team and helped them achieve a handful of different things that hadn't been achieved in years.An Atlantic Division title, fifty-plus wins, and a playoff series' victory were all among those many things.But even so, when the pressure was on in the postseason, the Knicks were supposed...
Doc Rivers has not ruled out taking time off from coaching for a return to his broadcasting career and returning afterward to coaching, according to a source.
"You guys (media) have been around Doc long enough to know that's always been something he's talked about," the source said. "So it shouldn't come as a surprise.
"And frankly, now is probably...

That was fast. A few hours ago, a KG-to-LA in a “trade” that involved Doc Rivers was allegedly going hot and heavy. All the local guys were chiming in with their sources too, making it seem like this thing...
Not so fast, DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe.
What a crazy Saturday this has been. Doc Rivers was apparently on the table in a trade that would have also shipped KG and Pierce to LA. Of course, Danny Ainge had some crazy demands and it seems like the deal was hung up on Eric Bledsoe's inclusion.
And so, it appears both teams have now moved on?
Umm? RT @BA_Turner: Clippers...
Doc Rivers and Danny Ainge will meet on Wednesday to discuss the best way to move forward following the end of trade talks between the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers.
Rivers was nearly allowed to coach the Clippers in a deal that would have involved Kevin Garnett.

At this point it seems like a matter of when, not if, Doc Rivers departs Boston.
Despite talks between the Clippers and Celtics hitting an impasse over the weekend, it appears that talks to send Rivers and Kevin Garnett to Los Angeles in a multi-layered package deal are not totally dead after all. Now that it is clear the Clippers will not include point guard Eric Bledsoe in the...
The Clippers and Celtics are discussing a potential deal involving
Boston Coach Doc Rivers and power forward Kevin Garnett both coming
to Los Angeles, but the Clippers feel as if the current asking
price is too high, said NBA executives who asked not to be

We updated you earlier on the progress of the reported trade talks between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Boston Celtics that centered around Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett.

Doc Rivers stock in Boston is plummeting. Kevin Garnett's isn't far
behind. Paul Pierce's future is sadly not really in his own hands, and Danny
Ainge might be on the verge of making a deal that could be a fireable
While all this is happening, there is one

The basketball world has been filled with news of a potential Celtics/Clippers trade over the past few days. Though he wouldn’t technically be part of the trade per NBA rules, the “center” of the trade rumors has been current Celtics Head Coach Doc Rivers.

Celtics, Clippers still talking
The talk all weekend was about the potential goings on in the back halls at TD Garden. And it was not about the Stanley Cup Final making its way to Boston. There are proverbial moving boxes outside Doc Rivers' office if the team can get this thing figured out.
Catching you up in case you had your head buried in the sand, the Celtics...
Not here, KG. There...
I could easily say this was the most exciting podcast of all in which I have had the pleasure to participate this year. At the CelticsSpa office we were all anxiously having our phones ringing in frenzy and the sweat covered our foreheads on a very hot Monday evening.
You have read and heard about it for days: The Celtics and the Clippers were immersed in...
