This reads like some type of personal misconduct. Not really comfortable speculating how serious...

Struggling to even think of scenarios that would warrant a team suspension, but hadn’t already risen to the level of league involvement

The first thing that came to mind was when Jeff McInnis was at UNC and having an affair with Asst Coach Phil Ford’s wife…..something similar to that. Not saying this occurred but def would qualify as something the league wouldn’t touch while the team would. Obv not even a speculation but it came to mind.

Season hasn't even started yet and the Cs are already down 2 players and possibly a coach, this is ridiculous

“Discussions are ongoing within the Celtics”….so does that mean Celtics brass and management is figuring out what to do, league isn’t involved? Seems very bizarre. What could possibly be against the org’s rules but not the league’s? Or is it just to preemptively punish before the league gets involved (which rarely works).

If it’s fully internal/team, it can’t be violence or gambling, (or criminal) right?

Why would the team publicize such an issue, though? Unless it’s like Wyc or Brad or a players wife. Or course if it’s any of those he’d be canned, no?
Well if it's something they're suspending him over they kind of have to publicize it, not like people wouldn't realize it when he didn't show up opening night.

Suspension is “possible” per WBZ (so not 100% a given) and it says team “guidelines”

Yeah I mean, why would they suspend him over something like this, that wouldn’t be against league rules, isn’t illegal, and wouldn’t generally come out publicalls? If it’s behavior like this that has caused them to lose trust / confidence in him, then he should be fired, though.

Uhhhhhh this is truly bizarre. Any good Celtics karma has been eaten up by KD, Gallo, Rob, and now this. WTF is going on??

Super odd all the way around. Don’t know what would be a team rule that’s not NBA related honestly.

Strange to have such a huge partial story come out. More to come soon clearly.

-Sexual harassment/affair
-gambling
-fake vaccine card
-who knows

It has to be something serious that they’re trying to get out in front of. Basic infidelity can’t be it. Really concerning on so many levels

I can’t imagine an “organizational guideline” prohibiting this. If sex-related it must be a team employee or contractor. And even that is not typically prohibited, just discouraged.

Lying or misleading the organization about vaccination status is another possibility? Coley obviously isn’t a super reliable source.

This is what I am guessing. Anyone else notice that Ime wore a mask in interviews long after he needed too? Like he followed the unvaxxed guidelines but lied to the team about his status. Which is weird, because.... a thought process I'm not quite ready to go down
