“Our confidence in Nick just continues to grow, and part of that comes from what we’ve experienced together,” Raptors president Masai Ujiri said in a statement released by the team.
“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.”
Nurse, formerly a Raptors assistant for five seasons, has a 111-43 record in two seasons as the head coach and guided the franchise to its first NBA title last year. Toronto went 53-19 this season and was the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference before losing to the Boston Celtics in seven games in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
