    Unless the offer him some ridiculous never before seen coaching deal like 12M x 8 or 5% of the Lakers, give me one reason why Nick Nurse would leave on of the best coaching situations on the planet (pay, world class city, family situation, endorsement opps, autonomy, world class management team, mid and long term future of this team etc)?

    LA offers nothing but better weather....plus more stress and microscope and inevitable clashes with baby bron.
    To me, the ultimate deal maker is growth opportunity…Rob Pelinka’s days could be numbered. NN can still coach a couple of seasons but they may see him as their Brad Stevens down the road.

    weather, bright lights of Hollywood, rubbing elbows with the illuminati , and maybe pay raise could just be perks for him but seeing himself as the top guy just below Jeannie in the near future could be his penultimate career goal.

    or he stays put and just be a coach lifer of the Raptors, nothing is wrong with that.

    I don't think Nurse is going anywhere but just to play devils advocate LA would provide all the same things Toronto does, but probably at an even higher level (pay, bigger city, endorsement etc.) and Nurse would never have to worry about trying to get the best of the best players to work in his system. No more waiting on players to develop a shot or basketball IQ when the best of the best are lining up to play for the Lakers. That's got to be attractive to a young and aspiring coach looking to build on his resume.

    That is the point, the devil meaning Jeannie Buss will find a way. The recipient may see the other side much greener than the current one. As I said and will say it again, as long as it is done legally, Nick Nurse has the ultimate freedom to chose whatever benefits him personally and career wise. Klutch gave him what LeGarie couldn’t. …and Fuck Beyonce, Jay Z can have him.

    because klutch is really good at negotiating salaries. but they turned down ty lue or at least tried to cheat him. mark jackson who is represented by klutch hasn't gotten a shot.
    Not only does Klutch get their guys PAID, they get a bigger chunk of their salaries earlier in the year, as compared to other players.

    The article may somewhat provide us a reason why he switched representation

    NN has done it once, just sayin….

    Another factor to consider here is why Nick chose to be represented by Klutch.
    We all know that agency's reputation, so why them?

    The conflict between Nurse and LeGarie arose in April 2020, when the Raptors informed Nurse—who had been asking for a contract extension—they’d like to redesign and extend his contract. Nurse then hired the agency Klutch Sports Group. According to court records, Nurse called LeGarie from Toronto to say he was letting him go, a move that LeGarie describes as a breach.

    Ujiri didn’t take the bait but that was very tempting

    Understandably, Raptors fans can say that this is just noise….but personally I will not totally dismiss this news coming from Shams Charania.

    As I already stated before, Nick Nurse can do whatever he thinks would benefit him personally and that would include his family and kids and whether he see himself settling as a lifetime coach or if he has high hopes career wise. Brad Stevens took the opportunity after Ainge retired. Does he think that Masai and Bobby are lifers as Raps top dogs or does he have the patience to wait until a vacancy is open. In my opinion, Rob Pelinka’s days as Jeannie Buss puppet are numbered. Maybe Jeannie would offer NN growth opportunities.

    Time will tell.

    We can argue over the basketball reasons why Nick would or wouldn't make this move...

    But the primary reason Nick might bolt to Hollywood is plain to see...

    You can never fully dismiss the prospect of your top line front office staff going else where. So that is correct. I do not think that the Lakers job would be an upgrade. We can at least partially dismiss the legs that a rumor has and whether it makes sense or not.


    The rumor itself and the original story stated NOTHING about them having a chance. Just that they would inquire and ask.


    I can inquire about Beyonce... doesn't mean she is coming home with me.
    I totally agree….your opinion and Stephen A. Smith have merits to each of you personally but to others, it ain’t gospel so carry on
