Nick Nurse, who has a relationship with President Daryl Morey, has agreed to become the manager of the Philadelphia 76ers (hereafter referred to as Philadelphia).
According to ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, Philadelphia will appoint Nurse as the successor to head coach Doc Rivers on the morning of the 30th (Korean time).
The appointment of Nurse was a long-cherished decision for Philadelphia, which had not made it to the conference finals even once since the Allen Iverson era in 2001.
Nurse managed 11 seasons in the English league before starting his career as a manager with the Toronto Raptors. After returning to the United States, Coach Nurse joined the Rio Grand Valley Vipers, a G-League team affiliated with the Houston Rockets, and developed a relationship with President Morey.
In the meantime, Manager Nurse worked as an assistant coach for the Toronto Raptors from 2013 until manager Dwayne Casey was fired in 2018. Promoted to manager, he led Toronto to its first championship in franchise history, along with Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry. After that, he kept his managerial position until this season and was released after being eliminated from the play-in tournament.
Manager Nurse was on the list of potential manager candidates for the Philadelphia and Phoenix Suns along with manager Mike Budenholzer. However, Philadelphia tried to contact Nurse’s agent and received a vision for Philadelphia’s future centered on Embiid from him. As a result, Philadelphia decided to sign an agreement with Manager Nurse.
As a result, Manager Nurse reunited with President Daryl Morey and got a chance to fight alongside Embiid, who had defeated and given victory in the postseason.스포츠토토
Meanwhile, Manager Nurse is selected as a defensive expert manager.
He is known for making good use of players in the big man position at any point. Accordingly, it is expected that working with Embiid will not be bad, but there is also the disadvantage of overusing the main player, so it may work as a handshake for Embiid, who needs constant management.
A lot of attention is being paid to whether Coach Nurse can become a firefighter who will solve Philadelphia’s long-cherished dream.
