Paul Pierce Reacts to Ime Udoka Suspension Reports

Celtics coach Ime Udoka’s future is still in question after The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported Wednesday night that Udoka had an “improper intimate and consensual relationship” with a female member of the team’s staff.

This behavior apparently was a violation of the team’s code of conduct, and Udoka could be facing suspension.

A report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Thursday revealed that Udoka is expected to be suspended for the entire 2022–23 season, although nothing has been made official by the team.

Udoka’s actions and the Celtics’ response have caused a debate on social media regarding how the coach should be punished.
