In Friday’s episode of “The Lager Line,” Celtics Wire editor Justin Quinn offers his insight on the strengths and weaknesses of former Boston coach Ime Udoka, who appears to be one of two early frontrunners in the ongoing coaching search of the Houston Rockets.
Udoka, 45, was previously a longtime assistant to Gregg Popovich in San Antonio. He spent one triumphant season with the 2021-22 Eastern Conference champion Celtics before seeing his tenure unravel in scandal after an alleged affair with a female subordinate.
Led by usual hosts Ben DuBose and Paulo Alves, the show also shares updated information on Houston’s top candidates, which are believed to include Udoka; former Lakers, Magic, and Pacers head coach Frank Vogel; current Raptors coach Nick Nurse; and Kenny Atkinson, now Golden State’s lead assistant and formerly Brooklyn's head coach.
