Doc Rivers mum on returning to Celtics

MIAMI — Doc Rivers reached out to the Globe for the first time since the Celtics’ season concluded, but would not offer any hints as to whether he will return to the team as coach in a text-message exchange Sunday evening.

Rivers said he needed to “detox” after the season and apologized for being inaccessible to reporters. But he would not give any indication whether he will be back for a 10th season in Boston, although Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge told the Globe last month that Rivers planned to return.
