During a recent press conference, Udoka — who is now the coach of the Houston Rockets, spoke on the scandal, saying, “Honestly my part in it was to take ownership and accountability for my part.” He added, “They had a choice to make, a decision, and they went that route, and my thing was own up to it, take responsibility, and I served the suspension and had to own it, honestly. So, same thing i’ll preach to the guys. I can’t sit here and not take accountability myself. So it was their right to go about it however they wanted to and that’s the choice they took.” He added that he feels “remorse” for putting ex fiancee Nia Long and others in a touch position during the scandal.
