Udoka played in the NBA and has been a long time assistant in the league. He also has worked with Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Marcus Smart from their mutual time with Team USA. You never know with a first time head coaching hire, but this seems to me like a strong hire.
More from Rudy Gay on Ime Udoka:
“He’s got the perfect balance. He’ll laugh and joke, but knows how to be serious. A lot of assistants tell you what you want to hear. Ime will give it straight to you.” https://t.co/EDDnKrT7Rj
