Raptors hiring Nurse to replace Casey
15 June 2018, 01:44 | Charlene Valdez
External candidates included San Antonio Spurs assistants Ettore Messina and Ime Udoka, former Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer (who was hired by the Milwaukee Bucks on May 17) and EuroLeague coach Sarunas Jasikevicius.
The Toronto Raptors had the best regular season in franchise history this year, but after LeBron dealt them yet another postseason beatdown, the franchise elected to fire coach Dwane Casey.
Nurse has agreed to become the next coach of the Toronto Raptors, a person with direct knowledge of the hire told The Associated Press on Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time).
Nurse, 50, is from Carroll, Iowa. He previously spent six years as a D-League head coach, winning a pair of titles and earning Coach of the Year honors in 2011. Nurse emphasized more man and ball movement as well as outside shooting, helping the team go from last in assists the year before to sixth in 2017-18. The team ranked third in the National Basketball Association in offensive efficiency this past season, sixth in 2016-17, fifth the year prior, third in 2014-15, and ninth in 2013-14. Nevermind that Casey is a legitimate contender for Coach of the Year-General Manager Masai Ujiri felt the team needed a new leader. Casey was named the head coach of the Detroit Pistons on Monday.
