“This is not something that’s only the NBA. This happens in the workplace all around. But like I said, it’s not so much the act,” Barnes said.

The Celtics suspended Udoka for the upcoming season for multiple violations of team policies after he allegedly had an inappropriate relationship with a staff member. TMZ previously reported Udoka’s affair was with a female member of the Celtics’ travel logistics team.

According to a report by The Athletic, Udoka also allegedly made “unwanted comments” towards a woman with whom he had an affair, revealed by an investigation by the Celtics.

NBC Sports Boston reporter Amanda Pflugrad also came out to condemn the “humiliation” women staff with the team faced on social media as a result of the scandal, stating people shared “innocent people’s names in our organization, and their personal photos, and put them out there for speculation.”
