Doc on Chicago rumor: ‘That’s silly’

ORLANDO — An unsourced rumor on the AOL FanHouse website [1] Monday night linked Doc Rivers [2] and LeBron James [3] to the Chicago Bulls [4] as part of a package deal. Rivers denied it Tuesday morning as the team went through a shootaround in preparation for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Magic.

“It’s the first time I’ve heard it, but no,” Rivers told WEEI.com. “That’s silly.”

Rivers is a Chicago native, and the Bulls do have a head coaching vacancy after they fired Vinny Del Negro. But Rivers has a year left on his contract with the Celtics [5] and he has maintained that he will either be with the Celtics or he will spend the year in Orlando, where his family has a home.
