Raptors Sign Nick Nurse To Multi-Year Extension 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Sep 15, 2020 3:05 pm

The Toronto Raptors have signed Nick Nurse to a multi-year contract extension.


Nurse was hired by the Raptors in the 2018 offseason and lead the team to a championship in his first season. Nurse was the Coach of the Year in 19-20.


Nurse has posted a 111-43 record (.721) during the regular season.


“Our confidence in Nick just continues to grow, and part of that comes from what we’ve experienced together. The past two seasons have been unlike any other in our team’s history – first, winning our championship, and then navigating a global pandemic and committing long-term to the fight against racism and for social justice,” Raptors president Masai Ujiri said. “Nick has proved that he can coach on the court and lead in life, and we’re looking forward to accomplishing great things in the future.”


“My family and I will always be appreciative of Larry Tanenbaum and MLSE ownership for this opportunity. I’m grateful to Masai, Bobby, and the players for their trust and their hard work,” Nurse said. “Toronto has been my home for the past seven years, and I look forward to it being home for many more. I’ve watched this franchise grow and reach the pinnacle, and I look forward to the challenge of helping us win another championship.”

Exposed... In a seven game series decided by a missed box out, with a ridiculous A/TO to win game 3, with his best player laying eggs...

Besides the fact that Brad used Nick's strategies to defend Bam.
