Nurse has a long resume in the D-League which includes a championship last season with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. Nurse is 45 and spent 11 years in Europe prior to his extensive time in the D-League. 

The Raptors open there Vegas Summer League on Friday at 7:30 pm Vegas time taking on Miami Heat SL team that could include Toronto's own Myck Kabongo. Kabongo is currently on their roster in Orlando Summer League but in theory could swap to another team time will tell. That is also why the roster above is not a final roster it is a fluid one. Stone and three Raptor Rookies are locks to be there and after that you might see some change. Devoe Joesph is getting another look from the Raptors this season. George Karl's son also another interesting name on the roster.
