Danny Ainge won’t let Nets talk to Doc Rivers

Danny Ainge has said Doc Rivers is coming back to coach the Celtics in the 2013-14 season. Now Ainge is saying he has denied the Brooklyn Nets permission to speak with Rivers about their vacant coaching position, ESPNBoston.com reported Thursday night.

Rivers has three years and $21 million remaining on his contract. The Nets did not retain interim coach P.J. Carlesimo after getting knocked out of the playoffs earlier this month.
