What can’t Nick Nurse do?
After leading the Toronto Raptors to their maiden voyage to the NBA Finals, it has been reported that Nurse is expected to take over the reigns as Canada’s senior men’s basketball team coach at the FIBA World Cup this summer.
The news keeps getting better for basketball in our country. Sources confirm to me that Nick Nurse will become the next head coach for Team 🇨🇦 this summer at the world championships in China. Brillant hire by Rowan Barrett and Canada basketball. #RDS— Peter Yannopoulos (@PeteYannopoulos) May 26, 2019
