The Brooklyn Nets should hire suspended Celtics head coach Ime Udoka as their next head coach, according to a report of The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The deal could be finalized in 24-48 hours, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Brooklyn fired head coach Steve Nash on Tuesday afternoon. The Nets, who lost to the Celtics in the first round of the playoffs last year, started the season with a 2-5 record.

According to ESPN, the Celtics are ready to let Udoka go for another job. He is currently serving a one-year suspension for violating team policy.

According to ESPN, former Utah Jazz head coach Quinn Snyder could also be a possibility for Brooklyn.

Udoka was a Nets assistant on Nash’s squad during the 2020-21 season, the year before he joined the Celtics.

Udoka went 51-31 in his only season as head coach and led the Celtics to the NBA Finals where they lost to Golden State.
