Celtics rumours: Celtics linked to Frank Vogel

The Boston Celtics are yet to make an official decision on punishing head coach Ime Udoka for violating the team rules. Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Udoka is likely to be suspended for the entire upcoming season.

Wojnarowski added that assistant coach Joe Mazzulla is expected to be the team’s interim head coach.

The Celtics will go into the coming season without a good measure of the basketball skills from the coaching staff they displayed last season, with Udoka likely to be suspended for the entire season and Will Hardy agreeing to become the Utah Jazz’s next head coach . The Celtics could start the season with Mazzula and the rest of the assistants, but they could also look to gain experience in the open market.

Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix reported that the Celtics may be looking to bring in Frank Vogel to bring some coaching experience to their staff. Mannix also mentioned that Vogel might join the Celtics because of his relationship with Brad Stevens.

Vogel was an assistant coach for the Celtics from 2001-2004 and was the head coach for three NBA teams: the Indiana Pacers, Orlando Magic and the Los Angeles Lakers, with whom he won a championship in 2020.

Vogel was fired shortly after the Lakers missed the playoffs last season and has remained available since his layoff.

Ime Udoka does not resign

After Wojnarowski reported that the Celtics were likely to suspend Udoka for the season, Mannix reported that Udoka was considering stepping down as head coach.

NBA insider Chris Haynes later reported that Udoka would not resign as he waited until he received official notice of his punishment from the Celtics.

Although Wojnarowski has hinted that he is likely to be suspended for the entire season, there is no official word on what to expect for Udoka’s future as of yet. He can be banned for a season, maybe a game, or even fired. However, it’s obvious that when he’s done with the Celtics, it won’t be his will.

Paul Pierce adds his two cents

Celtics legend Paul Pierce decided to make his own contribution to Ime Udoka’s situation. Put simply, he believes a fine is appropriate, not a ban.

Pierce later clarified in case any of his followers didn’t know what he was talking about.

In response, Celtic’s Twitter chose Pierce’s well-known moniker to emphasize their affinity with him.

Some users agreed but also said it will all depend on when they learn the full scope of what happened.

While the details have more or less been released by Shams Charania by The Athleticit is very likely that there is much we do not know about this situation.

Others also reminded Pierce that failure to disclose a relationship with your colleague to your workplace can result in an employee’s termination.

It’s obvious Pierce doesn’t agree with the likely suspension for the season Udoka will receive from the Celtics. Pierce is entitled to his opinion on this matter, but it is true that such relationships can be viewed by companies as unprofessional, which could result in termination. Until now, no one knows the exact details of what was going on and they may never be revealed.

As far as we know, Udoka could very well lose his job through his actions and what exactly happened could only be between him and the Celtics organization.
