Marcus Sensible was of the idea Ime Udoka would return to the Celtics after his suspension got here to an finish.
However it seems that received’t be the case, and the Celtics guard appears blindsided by the reported transfer that Udoka might be the subsequent head coach of the Nets after they agreed to half methods with Steve Nash on Tuesday. Boston reportedly received’t look for any compensation from Brooklyn.
Udoka was issued a year-long suspension for having an inappropriate office relationship with a feminine Celtics staffer. It later was reported that he made undesirable feedback towards the staffer. As a result of the suspension was given out by the crew and never the NBA, Udoka is free to educate once more this season if he not is employed by the Celtics.
And that appears like it is going to be the case, and it’s not sitting nicely with Sensible.
In a dialog with The Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach, Sensible opened up concerning the confusion and different emotions that got here with not getting a complete lot of data on the matter.
“Clearly, we want he was right here,” Sensible advised Himmelsbach. “We’ve no management over that. It positively sucks. I suppose it was deemed that no matter occurred was sufficient for him to not be the coach right here, however I suppose not sufficient for him (not) to be a coach wherever else, clearly.
“His identify bought slandered and slaughtered and it was ‘He’ll in all probability by no means coach once more.’ And a few months later, now he’s probably going to be the coach of one among our greatest rivals? It’s robust. It is unnecessary. However we will’t management that. We’ve to manage what we will, and I really like the crew right here. I really like the teaching workers. I really like Joe (Mazzulla).”
