Nick Nurse is heading to Philadelphia.
‘ESPN’ reported on the 30th (Korean time) that the Philadelphia 76ers had appointed Nick Nulls as their new manager.
Philadelphia fired head coach Doc Rivers immediately after being eliminated in the second round of the playoffs. Rivers made the playoffs all three years at Philadelphia, but he did not lead the team to the conference finals.
Several people have been mentioned as candidates for Philadelphia’s next head coach. Although they have failed several times recently, Philadelphia has enough power to be considered a strong player in the Eastern Conference. In particular, the biggest attraction is that they have regular season MVP Joel Embiid.
After much consideration, Philadelphia decided to accompany Nick Nulls. The Nulls parted ways with Toronto at the end of this season.
The Nurse’s Toronto was a team that gave Embiid bitter memories. In the 2018-2019 season, when Philadelphia was at its peak, they lost to Toronto in the second round of the playoffs.
At the time, Embiid was blocked by the Toronto defense and could not play his own way at all, and after the series ended, he cried tears of regret in the arms of Marc Gasol. Afterwards, in the game on November 26, 2019, the first meeting, he suffered humiliation of not being able to score even after playing 32 minutes.안전놀이터
Embiid and Nick Nulls, former head coach of Toronto, will meet on the same team. According to ESPN, it was reported that his desire to coach Embiid and his past association with president Daryl Morey were important influences on his contract. The Phoenix Suns also left an offer to the Nurses, but the Nurses chose to go to Philadelphia.
After appointing the head coach, Philadelphia is facing an important offseason. It has been said that Philadelphia’s off-season assignment is the retention of James Harden, and that it will focus first and foremost.
