Steve Nash

Not long after the Brooklyn Nets decided to part ways with Steve Nash, Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka, who is now suspended, emerged as the front-runner for the role in Brooklyn. Actually, Udoka seems to be the only applicant since the Nets are apparently close to selecting their new head coach.

The Celtics appear content to let Udoka leave on their end. The decision to permit the Nets to speak with Udoka was made in part due to the team’s faith in interim coach Joe Mazzulla, according to a report by Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe:

The Celtics, according to an NBA source, are willing to allow Udoka to coach for another team without compensation. That s how much they re ready to move on from this situation. Privately, they have been pleased with the progress of the franchise and the team under Joe Mazzulla s leadership and are hoping to strip the interim tag in the coming months.

The revelation of Udoka’s involvement with a female employee damaged his reputation within the Celtics organization. It appears that there is no turning back for him from this scandal, at least not from the perspective of the Boston Celtics organization, as the team suspended him for the whole season.

On the other hand, the Nets are seizing the chance. It’s also extremely likely that the knowledge that Udoka was still available played a role in their hasty decision to terminate Nash. After his saga in Boston, he gets a fresh start with the Nets and a chance to make amends. Although it won’t be simple, Ime Udoka seems like the ideal candidate given the requirements they have in Brooklyn.
