Ime Udoka may be sour on how last season ended, but says team’s growth may attract free agents


The dust finally settled after a disappointing end to a very good season for the Boston Celtics.

While “you’re proud of” the accomplishments and growth of the team, the Celtics coach noted “you have a sour taste in your mouth based on how it finished” — understandable, though he seemed optimistic even so.

Udoka went on to talk about improvements for the team, which he said would likely happen within the team after “having a year under our belt with each other”.

The Celtics coach was asked about free agents and how important it is to attract them. “Watching the growth of our young guys, I think that’s appealing to other players,” he explained, suggesting Boston’s recent success and upward trajectory could be an incentive for such free agents.
