Raptors Fire Nick Nurse

It has been reported by multiple news outlets and the team itself that Nick Nurse is no longer a part of the organization. Toronto will be on the hunt for a new head coach after parting ways with Nurse.

Nick Nurse has been the Raptors’ head coach since 2018, he became their head coach after spending time (and winning a championship) in the G-League.

In his rookie season, Nurse delivered them a championship – their only championship during his run as the head coach – and boosted himself as one of the best coaches in the league at that time. He padded his resume with Coach of the Year.

Overall, Nurse went 227-163 in five regular seasons. He was a further 25-16 in three playoff appearances.

With that being said, Toronto will be looking to find a new head coach and that could be found in the potential hiring of Ime Udoka.

Ime Udoka could become their next head coach with him having a preexisting relationship with president Masai Ujiri. However, expect the Raptors to interview other potential candidates.
