According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Nick Nurse will be the franchises next head coach.

Toronto Raptors assistant coach Nick Nurse gestures during a game against the Detroit Pistons on February 29, 2016.

Nurse, a long-time assistant under Casey, was one of the first people interviewed by president Masai Ujiri and general manager Bobby Webster and was the leading candidate throughout much of the hiring process.

Toronto's coaching search reportedly had narrowed down to Nurse and San Antonio assistant coach Ettore Messina.

He said that though he asked at the last minute, Kim agreed "so quickly" and was "so nice" about it: "He understands it". He also has a history with Trump as Rodman appeared on his Celebrity Apprentice reality television show in 2009.


"Greatest achievement" of summit was trust-building between Kim, Trump: Seoul
Rodman didn't explain the conditions in detail, only mentioning that moving "ships" back from South Korea was part of them. Rodman said Trump's secretary called him to say, " Donald Trump is so proud of you, he says thank you".

She said unless there was a "meaningful vote" Parliament would be left with "the grim choice between a poor deal and exit with no deal at all".


Toronto fired Dwane Casey on May 11 after the team was swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference semifinal. He spent more than a decade in Europe, was an assistant coach for Britain at the 2012 London Olympics, is a past G League coach of the year and coached Rio Grande to that league's title in 2013. Toronto also took the third-most threes in the league, up from 22nd place two seasons ago.

The short version of that: Hiring internally is unsexy, but most signals point to Nurse being a legitimately good candidate as an National Basketball Association head coach. Yesterday afternoon it was announced that Casey had agreed to a five-year deal to become the new head coach of the Detroit Pistons. During his seven-year tenure, Casey went 320-238 (.573).

"I leave here with my head high", he told TSN via text message in May.
