Nick Nurse recently signed a multi-year contract extension with the Toronto Raptors and will remain with the franchise for many years.

Thanks to the contract extension, Nurse is expected to become one of the highest-paid coaches in the NBA.

“Raptors coach Nick Nurse signed a new multiyear contract extension on Tuesday — a deal that pays him around $8 million per year, sources say. This makes Nurse among the highest-paid coaches in the NBA,” Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Nurse led the Raptors to the NBA championship in 2019. The team also finished with the second-best record in the 2019/20 season, yet Toronto was eliminated by the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals (4-3).
