Celtics suspend head coach Ime Udoka for a season

After leading the Boston Celtics to the NBA Finals, head coach Ime Udoka will now face a major setback after the Boston Celtics suspended him for the 2022-23 NBA season, effective immediately.

Udoka reportedly violated the team policies by having an intimate relationship with a female staff of the franchise.

The development was first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

With the decision handed down, Udoka released an apology.

“I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization, and my family for letting them down. I am sorry for putting the team in this difficult situation, and I accept the team’s decision. Out of respect for everyone involved, I will have no further comment,” he said.

Assistant coach Joe Mazzulla will now be the interim head coach of Boston for a season.

Jazz trade Bogdanovic for Olynyk, Lee

Utah Jazz is more and more likely to overhaul their roster after trading away their key pieces before the start of the new season.

After sending Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves and Donovan Mitchell to the Miami Heat, it is now the veteran Bojan Bogdanovic’s turn to move.

The Jazz sent the veteran forward to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Kelly Olynyk and Saben Lee according to the report of ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The 6’7″ sweet shooting Croatian averaged 18.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game last season compared to just 9.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists average of Kelly Olynyk and the 5.6 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.9 assists of Saben Lee.

Two more star players are expected to be traded before the new season, namely the former Sixth Man of the Year and Fil-Am gunner Jordan Clarkson and former NBA All-Star Mike Conley. Both combined for 29.7 points per game last season.

NBA to impose some changes in the coming seasons

The game of basketball is expanding and evolving, thus, the rules too.

In a report of The Athletic, the NBA and the Players Association are expected to apply new rules in the league and these are the draft age eligibility and mental health designation.

Both agreed to lower the draft eligibility to 18 years old, meaning high schoolers can directly apply to the NBA draft without spending one-year in college.

The current rule that only allowed 19-year old players to apply in the draft is causing a lot of one-and-done players in college. With the current level of basketball talent in the world right now, more teenagers are already capable of playing in the NBA just like LeBron James and the late great Kobe Bryant.

Here are other ballers that were drafted right out of high school:

Kendrick Perkins, Andray Blatche, Gerald Green, CJ Miles, Rashard Lewis, Tyson Chandler, Jermaine O’Neal, Amar’e Stoudemire, etc.

The other thing the league wants to change is the designation of “mental health” that is going to be placed under “injury.” This means the player can sit out of a game while taking his time to heal.
