Boston Celtics head coach Ume Idoka has been suspended for at least one year for multiple violations of the organization's code of conduct.

According to multiple reports, Udoka had an affair with a member of the organization. It's unclear what exactly is causing the year-long suspension. 

Udoka has notably been engaged to Hollywood actress Nia Long, who was reportedly unaware of the affair, even when she moved to Boston.

"According to well placed sources, even after the affair was discovered by the Celtics, the female staffer continued to work with #NiaLong on her move to Boston. Nia did not learn about the affair until the disciplinary action by the franchise was made public," Kevin Frazier reports.

That is truly heartbreaking to read.
