I mean.. I'm just guessing here.. but given everything that went on and all the pre-launch uncertainty surrounding the Chill, there's got to be NO WAY that Rivers agreed to coach the team without signing a fully guaranteed contract for the season..

Presumably, he's also smart enough that the contract would be enforceable against the Mavericks as well as the Chill.

So I think firing their coach would actually cost them money.

I cannot envision a scenario whereby Rivers agreed to coach without guaranteed salary for the entire season..
