Lumagda ng isang multi-year contract extension si coach Nick Nurse para sa Toronto Raptors nitong Miyerkoles (Manila time) sa kabila na sa Hunyo 2021 pa matatapos ang dating napirmahan.
“Our confidence in Nick just continues to grow, and part of that comes from what we’ve experienced together,” pahayag ni Raptors president Masai Ujiri, na hindi lang dinetalye ang contract extension – taon at halaga.
The past two seasons have been unlike any other in our team’s history — first, winning our championship, and then navigating a global pandemic and committing long-term to the fight against racism and for social justice. Nick has proved that he can coach on the court and lead in life, and we’re looking forward to accomplishing great things in the future.”
Si Nurse ang rumenda sa kampeonato ng Raptors sa 73rd National Basketball Association (NBA)2018-19 makaraang kunin siyang coach noong 2018 mula sa may limang taong pagiging assistant coach muna sa Toronto.
“My family and I will always be appreciative of Larry Tanenbaum and MLSE ownership for this opportunity. I’m grateful to Masai, [GM] Bobby [Webster], and the players for their trust and their hard work,” lahad ni Nurse, na patok sa NBA Coach of the Year sa kasalukuyang season.
Dinagdag pa niya, “Toronto has been my home for the past seven years, and I look forward to it being home for many more. I’ve watched this franchise grow and reach the pinnacle, and I look forward to the challenge of helping us win another championship.”
