The Toronto Raptors didn't have to go far to find the man who will be the ninth head coach in franchise history.
Wojnarowski adds, however, that the two sides are still working through contractual details.
According to TSN's Josh Lewenberg, Nurse was on a list of internal candidates being considered that included Raptors 905 head coach Jerry Stackhouse (who joined the Memphis Grizzlies staff last week) and assistant Rex Kalamian.
NICK Nurse spent nearly three decades paying his coaching dues, toiling with teams in Britain, Italy and Belgium, college basketball and the G League.
San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Ettore Messina and Lithuanian Basketball League coach Sarunas Jasikevicius were also interviewed for the job.
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 was also named D-League Coach of the Year in 2011.
