|Nick Nurse spent almost three decades paying his coaching dues Authentic Customized Seahawks Jerseys , toiling with teams in Britain, Italy and Belgium, college basketball and the G League.
The chance he’s long coveted has finally arrived.
Nurse has agreed to become the next coach of the Toronto Raptors, a person with direct knowledge of the hire told The Associated Press on Tuesday. Nurse will be replacing his former boss, Dwane Casey – under whom he spent the past five seasons as a Raptors assistant. Casey was fired after the Raptors were swept out of the second round of this year’s playoffs by Cleveland.
Nurse and the Raptors were completing contract terms Tuesday, according to the person who spoke to AP on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not been announced. ESPN first reported the hiring.
The move seems to suggest there will be at least some continuity between what the Raptors have been doing and what they’ll do on his watch. Toronto went 59-23 this season, the best record in the Eastern Conference and second-best record in the NBA behind only Houston – and Nurse was in charge of the offense Falcons Game Jerseys , led by All-Star guards DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry.
The decision comes a month after Casey was let go and one day after he was hired by the Detroit Pistons as their new coach. The Raptors always raved about Casey’s work ethic, and Nurse took note.
”I’ve learned a lot about preparation from him, the seriousness of attention to detail,” Nurse told Canada’s Sportsnet in February. ”He’s been around the league a long time and he’s seen it all. That’s the biggest thing. We have to prepare the players and can’t leave any stone unturned. We have to know everything the other team is doing and really work hard and grind it out.”
Nurse graduated from Northern Iowa and got his first head coaching position at Grand View College when he was only 23 – some 27 years ago. 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.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers moved to bolster the NFL’s least productive pass rush, signing former Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Vinny Curry in free agency.
The Bucs also announced the signing Monday of free agent center Ryan Jensen Tyler Eifert Jersey , who spent the first five years of his pro career with the Baltimore Ravens.
Curry, who received a three-year, $27 million deal, entered the league as a second-round draft pick in 2012 and played six seasons for the Eagles.
The 29-year-old started 19 games for Philadelphia last season, including the Super Bowl, and is the second member of the Eagles defensive line to sign with Tampa Bay this month.
The Bucs, who were last in the NFL with 22 sacks in 2017 Cheap Darius Leonard Jersey , signed tackle Beau Allen last week.
Curry appeared in 84 regular-season games, with 16 starts, for the Eagles. He has 22 sacks, along with 33 tackles for loss and five forced fumbles.
Jensen agreed to a four-year, $42 million contract, with $22 million guaranteed. He was a sixth-round draft pick of the Ravens in 2013 and became a full-time starter last season, when Baltimore ranked 11th in rushing offense and tied for the seventh-fewest sacks allowed.
The Bucs William Jackson Jersey , meanwhile, announced defensive end Robert Ayers, Jr., has been waived. He signed with Tampa Bay in free agency two years ago and had 8 sacks in 24 games.
