The Boston Globe reports that Celtics' head coach Doc Rivers will return for a seventh season with Boston.

Rivers was considering retirement in the offseason to spend more time with his family.

In an offseason that could lead to drastic changes for the Celtics, this is the best news for which they could have hoped.

Starting forward Paul Pierce told the Celtics yesterday that he was opting out of the final year of his contract to take part in the 2010 free agency frenzy. Another key player for the Boston Celtics that could possibly leave the Celtics via free agency is sharpshooter Ray Allen.

So at least some good news reached Boston today, and we will see what happens during the 2010 offseason.
