Toronto Raptors hiring Nick Nurse as next coach

DeRozan

The chance he's long coveted has finally arrived.

On Tuesday, the Raptors finally chose to move forward with Nurse, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, in an effort to get a new lead voice in the locker room but not go through a total staff change given their success developing players and in the regular season. Yesterday afternoon it was announced that Casey had agreed to a five-year deal to become the new head coach of the Detroit Pistons.

Last weekend, Meghan attended the Trooping the Colour: a 260-year-old tradition to honour the reigning monarch's birthday. During the event, Meghan hinted that her future efforts will focus on women's empowerment.


One month into their coaching search, Masai Ujiri and the Toronto Raptors may have neared a decision on who will be the team's next head coach. At the very least, the Raptors would want it to be known that they at least interviewed their in-house candidate.

ESPN first reported Nurse's promotion. Nurse would probably have to be considered the front-runner of the group, given his track record and how the offense shifted and held up in the playoffs, but it's always hard to ascribe credit and blame across a coaching staff.

Shortly before 1.30pm on Tuesday, David Davis, the Brexit Secretary, opposed a House of Lords amendment in no uncertain terms. That has potentially seismic consequences for the protracted and increasingly messy split from Brussels.


Lewenberg noted that if the Raptors passed on Nurse as head coach, they risked losing him altogether as he finished atop a Yahoo poll from early April among executives that tabbed him as the top head coaching prospect among National Basketball Association assistants.

How will Nick Nurse help the Raptors in 2018-19? He's been an active coach since 1989 but spent most of his career in college and the D-League.
