After last year’s loss in the NBA Finals, Doc Rivers was uncertain about returning, but opted gave it one more chance to win another title with the same group. As you know, the Celtics were recently eliminated by the Heat, a team that came together to beat the Green-team. This time, after the season-ending loss a few nights ago, Doc said he was strongly leaning toward returning.

It looks like Doc will be in Boston for at least the next five years, all but guaranteeing he oversees the end of the Big Three Era and the beginning the next Celtics era.

More from CSNNE’s Greg Dickerson:

Doc Rivers has agreed on a five-year contract extension with the Celtics, according to a team source with knowledge of the negotiations.

Terms were not disclosed. The final details of the agreement are still being worked upon.

There has been speculation that Doc will earn about $6 million per season.

  1. It sucks the C’s bowed out (relatively) early this year. But here’s to a strong start to the offseason! Big fan of this move for continuity reasons.
