Ime Udoka is forfeiting half of his $4 million salary with the Boston Celtics as part of his season-long suspension, reports Marc Stein of Substack.

Udoka had an improper relationship with a subordinate. The Celtics are widely expected to not bring Udoka back as head coach next season.

The Brooklyn Nets have been linked with hiring Udoka, but Joe Tsai has been urged to reconsider the plan. Sean Marks and Kevin Durant are said to be favoring the hire of Udoka.
