There is also the possibility that general manager Danny Ainge would sign a player; former Celtic Keyon Dooling, who’s working for the team in community relations, has been mentioned as a possibility. The Celtics, who were already languishing below .500, could also trade one of their stars and begin rebuilding.
“Danny has not brought up anything,” Rivers said.
Rivers said he won’t worry about Pierce being asked to do too much.
“I don’t think Miami worries about running too much through LeBron (James),” he said. “I don’t think the Lakers worry about running too much through Kobe (Bryant).”
