Nah it's was a subordinate. People forgot a key point: Timing, with the Robert sarver thing just getting a conclusion. And if you look back couple of year back Cuban got into muddy water too. With Sarver setting a precedent of team owner having to sell, no GM or Owner gonna mess with sexual misconduct right now. He fcked someone he had power over, lets say the team close an eye on it. Later the female employee leak everything and say she was promised a promotion or something in exchange of sexual favor. Bam now Celtics are the new Mavs and Suns and the whole building come crashing down. They had to address this asap with an action that would indicate that they wont tolerate that kind of thing, don't forget one thing there is always a starting point. If they let him do whatever he want, another gonna do it.

At any company I’ve ever worked for if a supervisor had a relationship with an employee below them in the company there would be an investigation and they’d be terminated. A year suspension sounds like a lot, but I had a manager terminated just for pursuing a relationship with an employee.

At my work, one shift's manager was passed on for a promotion to a higher role because she's dating an employee on another shift, and the promotion would put her on his chain of command. Pretty standard stuff

They don't want to pay the entire contract. They're probably negotiating a buy out with Udoka and his agent, but they couldn't come to an agreement quickly enough for an announcement today. So all they can do is suspend him for a year.

Notice that the press release says that a decision on his future beyond this season is yet to be determined. In other words, he gone.

Improper relationship with a subordinate is no bueno in the current environment. Sarver got slammed for allowing sexual harassment, so the Celtics have to take drastic measures to cover themselves. The subordinate has a legitimate claim that she felt pressured to have a relationship with him because refusing could affect her job.

We need more details. It just HAS to be more than hooking up with a staff member that was consensual

I think it’s really more about the position it put the Celtics in because it does create a large amount of public, embarrassing, and expensive legal liability for the team.

And if it was someone who worked at the Celtics and who married to an exec, that just shows a complete lack of judgement.

Man, from the NBA Finals to having our head coach fumbling like this in the space of 3 months is a tough, tough deal.

This sucks.

It's the right call, but it sucks.

Imagine working for years in the NBA as an assistant, paying your dues to finally get a head coaching job, then landing a job with a storied franchise, one with a pretty talented & young roster, one that's right there in the sweet spot of having some playoff experience, but still hungry to be coached, then leading that team through a historic regular season turnaround, making it to the NBA Finals, falling short of winning it all, but with some achievable goals and tweaks that could mean winning it all the following season.... to "at least I had sex".

Sometime people just can't be saved from themselves.

Classic Shakespearean downfall.

Greed, ambition, pride, and vanity are a dangerous cocktail!

This is unprecedented.

A coach being suspended for an entire season.

Why not just fire him?

How is he supposed to come back and coach this team?

If it were for a month, sure.

A year?

He should resign. Putting THIS squad they have built and taken to the finals in jeopardy and facing literally a whole season away from them I don't see how he comes back and gains the respect of the locker room
