Report: Celtics seeking permission for reunion with former assistant coach

The Celtics are seeking permission from the Clippers to talk to former assistant coach Jay Larranaga about rejoining the team and serving on Joe Mazzulla’s staff, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Larranaga spent nine years in Boston before joining the Clippers in 2021. If Larranaga were to rejoin Boston, it would provide some experience for a bench that will enter the season with the youngest head coach in the NBA.

Thirty-four-year-old Mazzulla was named the Celtics’ interim head coach in the wake of the season-long suspension of Ime Udoka.
