Report: Raptors hire Nurse on 3-year, $10M contract

The Toronto Raptors' agreement with reported new head coach Nick Nurse will see the 50-year-old bench boss paid approximately $10 million over the next three seasons, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.


The Raptors announced that the team's next head coach will be introduced at a press conference Thursday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. ET, but have yet to officially acknowledge Nurse as the successor to Dwane Casey.


Casey was dismissed after seven seasons with the team. On Tuesday, the winningest coach in Raptors history signed a reported five-year contract with the Detroit Pistons that will see him earn nearly $7 million annually.
