Add Garrett Jackson to a growing list of Celtics assistant coaches who appear poised to join their former boss, Ime Udoka, under his new role as head coach of the Houston Rockets. Jackson’s inclusion was first reported Saturday by HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto.

Boston’s Ben Sullivan, Aaron Miles, and Mike Moser were previously reported as likely candidates to join Udoka with the Rockets. No official announcement from the team has been made, though Udoka said in a recent media availability that news could come soon.

Jackson, 31, was hired as part of Boston’s player enhancement staff in September 2021. Prior to that, he worked in the video department of the San Antonio Spurs and legendary head coach Gregg Popovich starting in 2019 — when Udoka was still with that team.

Jackson played college basketball with USC and Saint Mary’s before a brief professional career with international clubs. From 2015 to 2018, he played for North-West Tasmania Thunder, Melbourne United, Sydney Kings, Dandenong Rangers, and TG s.Oliver Wuerzburg.
