The Toronto Raptors will hire assistant Nick Nurse as the franchise’s new head coach, league sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The sides are finalizing contract terms Tuesday.
Nurse will replace Dwane Casey, who was fired last month after leading the Raptors to a franchise-record 59-win regular season and the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Casey was hired as the Detroit Pistons‘ coach on Monday.
