Report: Toronto Raptors Have Found Their Next Head Coach


For the second time in the past decade, the Toronto Raptors have fired a former NBA Coach of the Year, this time being Nick Nurse, who led the team to their first and only NBA Championship in franchise history, leaving them with a big hole to fill this off-season.

With questions all over the roster, the next hire needs to be a big one for Toronto, and on Saturday, it was revealed that they will be naming Memphis Grizzlies assistant Darko Rajakovic as the next Head Coach of the franchise. 

The Serbian has been working as an assistant in the NBA for the past nine seasons with Oklahoma City, Phoenix and Memphis, and with coaching experience dating back to 1996, the 44-year old has been waiting for his big break, and will now look to lead the Raptors back to the playoffs once more.
