The Boston Celtics announced that assistant coach Ben Sullivan will helm the team’s Las Vegas Summer League team in an announcement circulated to the media on Monday afternoon, a change from last season’s Sin City contingent being helmed by fellow Celtics assistant coach Joe Mazzulla.

With some shake-ups hitting Boston’s coaching staff after the departures of assistants Will Hardy and Evan Bradds to the Utah Jazz as the latter follows the former to Sal Lake City with the Jazz’ hire of Hardy as their next head coach, we can expect some shifting of roles and perhaps some new hires. Some analysts speculated that the posting could contribute to who gets the mantel as Celtics head coach Ime Udoka’s next lead assistant after Hardy’s exit.

The opportunity at the minimum will be an opportunity for Sullivan to show off his head coaching chops, perhaps putting him in a position to expand the Udoka coaching tree in the future.
