The Toronto Raptors interviewed 15-year NBA veteran and current ESPN analyst JJ Redick for their coaching vacancy, ESPN reported Wednesday

Redick, 38, met with franchise leaders in Toronto recently during the club’s initial round of interviews to replace Nick Nurse, who was dismissed after a 41-41 season.

Other names who have been linked to the Raptors‘ wide-ranging coaching search include Las Vegas Aces coach Becky Hammon and NBA assistant coaches Kenny Atkinson, Charles Lee, Kevin Young, Mitch Johnson, Jordi Fernandez and Darko Rajakovic

Redick, a guard, averaged 12.8 points in 940 games with six NBA teams from 2006-21. The Orlando Magic drafted him with the No 11 overall pick in 2006 out of Duke, where he was a two-time ACC Player of the Year.
