The Raptors Have Found Their Next Head Coach

Toronto Raptors to promote assistant Nick Nurse to head coach

The Toronto Raptors have settled on assistant coach Nick Nurse as their new head coach, according to ESPN.

Nurse takes over a team that had an Eastern Conference-best 59 wins in the season just ended. 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. Stackhouse had several other interviews in the past month, Kalamian has interviewed for outside positions before, and Nurse has been at the top of potential first-time hire lists for years now, so there's legitimate flight risk here. Casey was named the head coach of the Detroit Pistons on Monday.

But the team was again bounced from the playoffs by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Casey was let go shortly after.

The Raptors have an expensive payroll led by Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan.

The terms of the deal were not announced yet.

In 2007, he became the head coach of the Iowa Energy in the then-NBA D-League, and was a coach in that league until 2013 when he became a Raptors assistant.
