BOSTON – The Boston Celtics have suspended coach Ime Udoka for that 2022-23 season, effective immediately, with no guarantee he’ll be back using the franchise later on.
The Celts stated Thurs . that Ime Udoka was suspended for “violations of team policies.”
“A decision about his future using the Boston Celtics coach beyond this year is going to be made later on,” the celts stated.
Udoka, inside a statement printed by ESPN, apologized but didn’t offer detail.
“I wish to apologize to the players, fans, the whole Boston Celtics coach organization, and my loved ones for allowing them to lower. I’m sorry for putting they within this difficult situation, and that i accept the team’s decision. From respect for everybody involved, I’ll don’t have any further comment,” he stated.
It’s the 2nd major disciplinary situation in as numerous days within the National basketball association, following a decision a week ago by Commissioner Adam Silver to suspend Robert Sarver – who owns the Phoenix Suns and WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury – for just one year and fine him $ten million after an analysis demonstrated his pattern of disturbing workplace conduct, including abusive and racist language. Sarver stated Wednesday he promises to sell his teams.
