A report this morning indicates Celtics coach Doc Rivers is considering leaving his position at the end of the season to spend more time with family, but he has not made a final decision.

Rivers says in the Boston Herald's story that he reassesses his situation every summer, but the pull of family gets stronger every year.

"Part of it is true," Rivers told the Herald. "Every year I sit down in the middle of the summer and I have a family discussion. We talk about what we want to do. That's nothing new, but every year it gets stronger and stronger. And I think people are making some common sense reads. I've got three seniors next year, two in college and one in high school. That's important to me. We're all family men. We all have kids."
