AP: Doc, Celtics working on a new multiyear deal

05.12.11 at 7:52 pm ET

The Celtics and Doc Rivers are working on a multiyear deal that would keep Rivers in Boston for the foreseeable future, according to the Associated Press.

The AP quotes a source saying the deal would be for “more than two or three years.” Celtics GM Danny Ainge did not return calls to the AP, but did acknowledge in an on-air appearance with WEEI’s “Big Show” on Thursday that the sides were working on a long-term deal. After Miami eliminated Boston on Wednesday night, Rivers sounded like a man who was intent on returning to the Celtics’ bench.

“I haven’t made that decision, but I can tell you I probably will,” he said. “I’m a Celtic and I love our guys. I want to win again here, and I’m competitive as hell. I have a competitive group, so we’ll see. I can tell you that is where I am at today. Tomorrow I may change my mind, but that’s where I am at today.”
