Two historic Celtics assistants pushed to exit | NBA

It is confirmed Will Hardy will indeed leave Spurs to join Ime Udoka at the Celtics. The young assistant of Gregg Popovich joins Joe Mazzulla, the only assistant of Brad Stevens preserved. The Boston Globe confirms that Odoka is trying to recruit Damon Stoudamire, the former point guard of the Raptors and the Blazers, now a coach of the University of Pacific.

In addition, we learn that the contracts of Jay Larranaga and Jamie Young have not been renewed. The first, well known to the French for having played in Pro A, had been in place since 2012, and he was Stevens’ first assistant.

« I really appreciate the opportunity I have been given to work for the best franchise in the NBA for the past nine years, » reacted Larranaga in the Boston Globe. “I learned so much from both the players I coached and the people I worked with. I have enjoyed so much being with the Celtics and I take only great memories as I move on to the next chapter of my coaching career. « 

As for Young, it is the end of a collaboration of… 20 years since he arrived at the Celtics in 2001 as a video assistant. It was Doc Rivers who integrated him into his staff, and Brad Stevens convinced him to stay in 2013.

« This experience has been incredible », Young said. “We are not used to staying so long in the same place in this profession. It was everything one could dream of: seventeen playoff seasons, five Eastern Conference finals, two NBA finals and a title. «
