Austin Rivers drafted by Hornets
BOSTON -- Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers will only be able to watch his son, Austin, twice per season moving forward.
The elder Rivers counts Hornets coach Monty Williams as a close friend and is likely thrilled to have his son playing for him. The Hornets also owned the No. 1 pick in Thursday's draft, selecting big man Anthony Davis.
The entire Rivers family was present in Newark, N.J. to hear Austin's name get called.
Doc Rivers was selected in the second round of NBA draft (31st overall) 29 years ago Thursday.
