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.
