Nick Nurse is one of the brightest young coaches in the league. His record with the Toronto Raptors since he took over as head coach has been excellent, and he already has a championship to his name. Understandably, that means there is always interest in Nurse from other teams looking for coaches, and now that the Los Angeles Lakers have a vacancy in the role, his name has been mentioned as a potential target.
The Lakers are a massive franchise, the most well-known NBA team around the world, and one of the most successful in the league’s history. This means that when they want a player or a coach, quite often they get their way. However, it would seem that this is not going to be the case with Nurse, who has spoken about the rumored interest and explained that he is happy to be coaching his current Raptors team.
