Celtics' Al Horford shares measured reaction to Ime Udoka-to-Nets rumors

Nov 4, 2022

A report that the Brooklyn Nets plan to hire Ime Udoka as their next head coach has been a lot for Boston Celtics players to process.

But Al Horford is ready to turn the page.

After Marcus Smart suggested he was surprised and confused by the idea that Udoka could be coaching Boston's rival despite being suspended by the Celtics for violating team policies, Horford was asked for his take on the situation Friday.

"We'll see how that develops. Right now, our focus is on our group and continuing to move forward," Horford told reporters at Boston's shootaround ahead of its game against the Chicago Bulls at TD Garden. "If that materializes for (Udoka), obviously we'll be happy for him, but at this point, we've already moved forward. ... We need to bounce back. That's what's on my mind."
