Ime Udoka, the head coach of the Celtics, may be subject to punishment for breaking team rules, possibly a lengthy ban, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Udoka’s suspension is currently being discussed by the team, and a decision on how long to suspend him might be made as soon as this Thursday. Nevertheless, Udoka’s position is not thought to be under danger, according to Wojnarowski.
Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe backed up Wojnarowski’s initial account.
According to Wojnarowski, the Celtics assistant Joe Mazzulla would be predicted to win the team’s temporary position if Udoka receives a ban. Former Udoka assistant Will Hardy moved from Boston to lead the Jazz in June.
After Danny Ainge retired and Brad Stevens joined the Celtics front office as president of basketball operations, Udoka assumed control before the 2017–18 campaign. During the regular season, he guided the squad to a second-place finish in the Eastern Conference.
The Boston Celtics made their first NBA Finals berth in 12 years thanks to the performance of their dynamic combo, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, as well as a solid defensive unit. According to ESPN, Udoka became the first coach since Nick Nurse of the Raptors in 2019 to appear in the NBA Finals in his first season and the sixth coach overall to accomplish so in the previous 25 years.
