Nick Nurse will be head coach of Canada at the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

"It’s just about done and something I’m looking forward to," said Nurse on Sunday.

The Toronto Raptors and MLSE “have been supportive of the idea, with the view that what is good for Canada Basketball is good for MLSE and the Raptors, and growing the basketball footprint across the country,” according to Michael Grange.

Leo Rautins was Canada’s head coach the last time the team qualified for the World Cup back in 2010.
