Nick Nurse To Become Sixers Next Head Coach

The Philadelphia 76ers are set to hire former Raptors head coach Nick Nurse as the team's next head coach. This per ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski. Nick Nurse was a hot commodity among coaching candidates this off-season, with virtually every team that had a coaching vacancy wanting to interview him. He recently took his name out of the running for the Milwaukee Bucks job, but this was after meeting with Phoenix Suns brass. This led many people to speculate that Nurse would be heading to Phoenix. Instead, he decides to head to Philly. Unbiased opinion but I like Philly better than Phoenix....personally....anyway. In 5 seasons as the Raptors head coach he compiled a 390-227 record while also winning the 2018 NBA title. Something Sixers fans remember all too well. After the Raptors lost Kawhi Leonard Nurse had his work cut out for him but he always had the Raptors playing competitive basketball. He will now get a roster that's in flux, but one centered around MVP Joel Embiid.
