According to the report, Rivers "believes it 'may be time for a change' in his status" with the franchise.
Following the Celtics elimination in the first round of the NBA playoffs, Rivers spent weeks, after the elimination, avoiding questions about his future with the Celtics with the media. Last week, in a text, Rivers reportedly sent a reporter, from the Boston Globe, saying that he needed to "detox" following the season, but refused to comment on on his intentions going forward.
Sources are saying that Rivers doesn't feel like going through another rebulding process with the team as veterans Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett exit their respective primes.
Rivers, if he decides to leave the Celtics, will have recorded a 416-295 record, two trips to the NBA Finals, with one NBA championship. Overall, Rivers has a 587-473 record, which includes his four years with the Orlando Magic.
Rivers still has three years remaining on his contract with the Celtics, which he's getting paid $21 million a year.
