Boston reportedly monitoring Stephen Silas, Frank Vogel to join coaching ranks
The Boston Celtics reportedly have two former NBA head coaches in their sights as potential additions to Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla’s staff for the 2023-24 season according to HoopsHype’s Mike Scotto. Per Scotto, the Celtics are “a team to monitor for Vogel, along with former Rockets coach Stephen Silas, who’s also drawn interest from several NBA teams”.
With the Celtics cohort of assistants having been devastated by departures to other programs over the last offseason and more recently with assistant Damon Stoudamire leaving to accept an offer to coach Georgia Tech, it makes sense that Boston is looking to add some championship caliber help to the Celtics organization.
Earlier this season, Silas was seen at a practice session at Auerbach Center, prompting speculation that the son of former Celtic Paul Silas might be joining the team’s coaching ranks as an assistant.

Scotto also reports that Celtics assistants Aaron Miles and Ben Sullivan could also be in the running to join new Houston Rockets and ex-Boston head coach Ime Udoka’s staff next season, adding some urgency to a search if that pans out.
