Rockets agree to make Ime Udoka next head coach after Celtics scandal: report

Apr 24, 2023

The Houston Rockets have reportedly agreed to a deal to make Ime Udoka, who was dismissed by the Boston Celtics after having an inappropriate workplace relationship prior to his season, their next head coach.

Udoka was rumored to be the Rockets’ top option after they fired Stephen Silas following another awful season. Silas went 59-177 with the team in 236 games over the last three seasons.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski noted that the Rockets consulted with the league office and the Celtics regarding Udoka’s departure from the organization. They clearly didn’t mind what they were told, as Wojnarowski added that they "moved fairly quickly" to finding a deal after an initial meeting.
