Early reports suggest that Udoka could be facing a season-long suspension. If that’s the case when the Celtics announce their decision, then one of the current Celtics assistant coaches will lead the team on an interim basis.

It was a consensual relationship between the two adults. He’s going to have to answer to more than just the Celtics.

Udoka has been in a long-term relationship with Nia Long. The couple has at least one child together.

Long made a post on her IG story as the news broke with her boyfriend.

During his first season as a head coach, he guided the Celtics to the NBA a finals. They were defeated by the Golden State Warriors.
