    According to Peter Yannopoulos, Nick Nurse will be the coach of Team Canada this summer at the World Championships in China.

    Nurse will be succeeding Hornets assistant coach Jay Triano, and will be in a similar position that Gregg Popovich has with Team USA. Nurse has had a meteoric rise since being the innovator of the Raptors new offense in 2017-18 as an assistant, to being promoted to head coach, to making the NBA Finals and now being named Team Canada's head coach.

    Nick Nurse has agreed to a three-year, nearly $10 million deal to become the head coach of the Toronto Raptors according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    It looks as though the Raptors preferred to keep it in-house for their next head coach. Nurse should bring a lot of the same tendencies to the table that Dwane Casey did, but he probably has more of an offensive approach — he was the one who overhauled the offense last season. It'll certainly be an interesting season for the Raptors.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Nick Nurse is expected to be names the new head coach of the Raptors.

    The other finalist for the head coaching job who had a second interview with the Raptors last week, was Ettore Messina. Nurse was Dwane Casey’s assistant coach the last few years, mainly in charge of the team’s offense. The two sides are currently working through details of their contract and an anouncement should be expected soon.

    Josh Lewenberg, of TSN sports, said Wednesday he believes Nick Nurse to be the favorite to become the next head coach of the Raptors.

    Lewenberg also noted that this was just his sense and knows that Rex Kalamian and Jerry Stackhouse are also in the running. It seems like the Raptors wanted to change things up after firing Coach of the Year finalist Dwayne Casey, yet the leading candidates all seem to be in-house. Kalamian and Nurse were both assistants under Casey and Stackhouse is the coach of the Raptors G-League affiliate Raptors 905. Nurse is said to be the mastermind behind the revamped Raptors offense that led to them taking their game to another level – in the regular season.
