Celtics Reportedly Targeting Clippers Assistant for Staff After Udoka’s Suspension

The Celtics are reportedly seeking permission to speak with Clippers assistant Jay Larranaga about joining Boston interim coach Joe Mazzulla’s coaching staff for the 2022-23 NBA season, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

Larranaga spent nine seasons in Boston before moving on to become an assistant with the Clippers in 2021. During his Celtics’ tenure, the 47-year-old interviewed for the head coach position in Boston when the franchise was looking a candidate to replace Doc Rivers.

Instead, the Celtics hired Brad Stevens, who now works in the team’s front office. However, Larranaga previously served as Stevens' assistant.
