It seems the Brooklyn Nets are more willing to turn a blind eye towards office romances than the Celtics or Wolves as they are hiring Ime Udoka.
The Nets plan to hire Ime Udoka as their next head coach, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.
While Jacque Vaughn may lead the Nets against Chicago on Tuesday, Udoka will be at the helm for the remainder of the season. Boston will allow Udoka to leave with no compensation in return being reported. He was suspended indefinitely by the Celtics after inappropriate workplace behavior with a female employee and was not expected to coach them after his suspension ended. Udoka did have success leading Boston last season, guiding them to the NBA Finals in his only season as their head coach. Udoka was previously an assistant for Brooklyn and reportedly challenged Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving consistently. The Nets will be filled with drama between Irving, Udoka and Ben Simmons, but they'll hope that the stars align for a turnaround after a 2-5 start to the season.

Sounds like the Nets are going to go after disgraced Boston Coach that was suspended: Udoka.
Not even shy about it, either.
