Eric Khoury joins team's 905 squad to serve in more significant assistant role
The Toronto Raptors are adding Brittni Donaldson to their bench in a coaching shuffle.
Nick Nurse confirmed the promotion on Sunday in Shanghai, where he's coaching Canada's men's team at the FIBA World Cup.
The NBA is one of the most progressive pro leagues in terms of promoting women, and recent weeks have seen the hiring of several women as assistant coaches.
The Raptors open the regular season on Oct. 22 versus New Orleans.
