During a press conference on Friday, the Boston Celtics revealed they first learned of an inappropriate consensual relationship between Ime Udoka and a team employee during the summer.
Wyc Grousbeck said the Celtics immediately hired a law firm to conduct what he called a thorough and impartial investigation that “took some twists and turns.”
“It took some time to develop all the facts. It finally concluded. For now, everything we know was wrapped up two days ago,” said Grousbeck.
Grousbeck said the organization was not responsible for the story being leaked Wednesday night.
“Obviously we would have nothing to do with that and nothing to gain from that,” said Grousbeck. “We don’t know where [leaks] come from. They’re part of the NBA as we all know in this room, but it’s really unfortunate.”
Udoka has been suspended for the entire 22-23 season and his future with the franchise is in doubt.
