The Raptors Have Found Their Next Head Coach

Toronto Raptors to promote assistant Nick Nurse to head coach

On Tuesday, the Raptors finally made a decision 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.

Toronto was rumored to desire former Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer, but Bud signed on to coach Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks.

The terms of the deal were not announced yet.

Nurse has been an assistant in Toronto since 2013. Toronto fired coach Dwane Casey last month, after Toronto was swept in a four-game Eastern semifinal series by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Nurse has six seasons of head-coaching experience in the National Basketball Association G League, where he won two championships and a coach of the year award. Wojnarowski reports that Nurse accepted the job on Tuesday morning. He also won two rings at the minor-league level.

After a stint as an assistant for the Dallas Mavericks, Casey took over as Raptors' coach from Jay Triano to start the 2011-12 season. He is the school's all-time 3-point percentage leader with.468 (170 of 363).

The short version of that: Hiring internally is unsexy, but most signals point to Nurse being a legitimately good candidate as an National Basketball Association head coach. "I know where we started".
