Celtics' Rivers, Ainge meet to clear air
Ainge always has made it clear to Rivers that the team’s preference is for him to remain as coach, even after negotiations to allow him to leave for the Los Angeles Clippers broke down on Tuesday morning. On Wednesday, Boston.com and Yahoo Sports reported that the Clippers and Celtics had resumed negotiations.
“He wants another championship or at least another chance at it,” a source close to Rivers said. “He doesn’t want to go through a rebuilding process.”
