There has been speculation that Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers would consider walking away from the team after this season to spend more time with his family, but team president of basketball operations Danny Ainge, for one, doesn't see that happening.

"I think Doc will come back," Ainge said in an interview on Boston sports radio station WEEI on Friday afternoon. Rivers, who has one year remaining on his contract, has acknowledged the rumors but insists he will not make any decisions about next season until this season is complete.
