Who is Nia Long’s fiancé Ime Udoka?

Since 2010, Long has been with Udoka.

Udoka, 45, is a Nigerian-American professional basketball coach and former player who was born on August 9, 1977, in Portland, Oregon.

Udoka played in the NBA’s official minor league, once known as the National Basketball Development League (NBDL – now the G League).

The athlete later joined several professional teams, including the New York Knicks, San Antonio Spurs, Sacramento Kings, and Portland Trail Blazers.

He also played basketball overseas in Argentina, Spain, France, and Nigeria.

From 2012 until 2019, Udoka served as an assistant coach for the San Francisco Spurs.

He then joined the Philadelphia 76ers under head coach Brett Brown before moving to the Brooklyn Nets in 2020.

Udoka was later named the Boston Celtics’ head coach in 2021.

Due to his successful career, he has been able to amass an extensive net worth of $11.5million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Is Ime Udoka suspended?

In Udoka’s first season as head coach, the Celtics finished seventh overall in the Eastern Conference and made their seventh consecutive postseason appearance.

Following the end of the season, many thought that things were looking up for the team who has not won a championship since 2008.

However, the Celtics were back in the headlines in September 2022 after it was revealed that Udoka might be benched for the 2022-23 season.

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Udoka had an “improper intimate and consensual relationship with a female member of the team staff,” which was a violation of franchise’s code of conduct.

As a result, he now faces possible disciplinary action that could include a season suspension.

At this time, the nature of the improper relationship remains unclear.

Do Ime and Nia have children together?

Udoka and Long have not tied the knot yet, but that has not stopped them from starting a family together.

In 2011, the two welcomed their son, Kez Sunday, who often makes appearances on Long’s social media pages.

Long is also the mother of 21-year-old Massai Zhivago Dorsey II, whom she welcomed while in a relationship with actor Massai Z Dorsey.
