Raptors hire Nick Nurse as new head coach

All three have interesting cases, with Nurse's resume standing as among the most decorated it could be without National Basketball Association head coaching experience, Stackhouse having an incredible first two seasons as a lead coach behind the 905 bench, and Kalamian holding a strong relationship with players and having what would seem to be the proper demeanor for the position.

The chance he's long coveted has finally arrived.

The Toronto Raptors will name assistant Nick Nurse as their next head coach, ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

The Toronto Raptors were the last team to open up a coaching vacancy and, on Tuesday, became the last team to fill that vacancy.

Lemar, 22, has become a regular fixture in the France national team squad since making his worldwide debut in 2016. A statement on Atletico's website confirmed the clubs will work over the next few days to complete the transfer.

Casey was named head coach of the Detroit Pistons, replacing Stan Van Gundy, on Monday. At the very least, the Raptors would want it to be known that they at least interviewed their in-house candidate. The Raptors always raved about Casey's work ethic, and Nurse took note.

Nick Nurse, head coach of the Iowa Energy, thanks the fans following the team's game against the Tulsa 66ers at the Wells Fargo Arena on April 18, 2011 in Des Moines, Iowa. We have to prepare the players and can't leave any stone unturned.

Nurse graduated from Northern Iowa and got his first head coaching position at Grand View College when he was only 23 - some 27 years ago. He also won a pair of titles in the G League with two different teams and was coach of the year there, too.
