Raptors Name Assistant Nick Nurse as Head Coach, Dwane Casey Signs 5-Year Contract as Pistons' Coach, Warriors Eager to Re-sign Durant and New Jersey Legalizes Sports Betting
The Toronto Raptors have named assistant coach Nick Nurse as their new head coach according to the Associated Press. The AP quotes Nurse talking about former Raptors coach Dwane Casey, under whom he worked for five seasons.
"I've learned a lot about preparation from him, the seriousness of attention to detail," Nurse told Canada's Sportsnet in February. "He's been around the league a long time and he's seen it all. That's the biggest thing. We have to prepare the players and can't leave any stone unturned. We have to know everything the other team is doing and really work hard and grind it out."
As for Casey, ESPN reports today that he has signed a five-year contract to be the head coach of the Detroit Pistons. Casey said in an interview on ESPN Radio that in moving to Detroit he would be taking on more than just the coaching job:
"They have a good team, they have a good roster and a very dynamic owner in Tom Gores, who is doing a lot of things for the city of Detroit," Casey said. "It's a little bit more than just coaching basketball ... that appealed to me also and to my family. Doing a lot of stuff in the community, rebuilding downtown, helping out Flint in their water situation -- so just a lot more things involved, more than just basketball."
The AP reports that Bob Myers, general manager of the NBA championship-winning Golden State Warriors, is eager to sign a new deal with star Kevin Durant.
"Sometimes you don't negotiate. I'd love to have him for 10 years. Kevin Durant, look what he did for us last year, he did us a great service," Myers said. "He's earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants. I just want him to sign a deal. But want him to be happy and want him to know that we want him as long as he wants to be here. He's earned that, to kind of lay out the terms. He can do whatever he wants. That shouldn't be a long negotiation. Our goal, to be honest, is to try to keep the whole thing together, so that's the pieces of the puzzle we've got to try to figure out."
New Jersey governor Philip D. Murphy signed a bill yesterday legalizing sports betting according to the New York Times.
"Today, we're finally making the dream of legalized sports betting a reality for New Jersey. It means that our casinos in Atlantic City and our racetracks throughout our state can attract new business and new fans, boosting their own long-term financial prospects. This is the right move for New Jersey and it will strengthen our economy."
