Toronto Raptors add Canadian Nathaniel Mitchell to coaching staff

The Toronto Raptors have made another move to round out their coaching staff by adding Nathaniel Mitchell, who spent the last three seasons as an assistant coach with the Charlotte Hornets.

In addition to the hire of Mitchell, the franchise made the hirings of Trevor Gleeson and Earl Watson official.

Mitchell, a native of Toronto, worked as an assistant in the NBA G League with the Raptors 905 from 2015-18.

In addition to his prior work with the Raptors franchise, Mitchell has been a member of the Canada Senior Men's National Team staff since 2016, working alongside Nick Nurse this past year during Canada's run at the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament this past June.

Returning to the Raptors coaching staff for the 2021-22 season are lead assistant Adrian Griffin, assistant coaches John Corbacio, Jon Goodwillie and Jim Sann as well as player development consultant Jamaal Magloire. Eric Khoury, who spent two seasons with the Raptors 905, is also returning to Toronto.

The work doesn't stop for the Raptors coaching staff, as they will be on their way to Las Vegas to work with the team's young talent ahead of the 2021 MGM Resorts NBA Summer League, which tips off on Sunday, Aug. 8.

Toronto's Summer League schedule begins that Sunday, Aug. 8, when they take on the New York Knicks at 4:30 p.m. ET (1:30 p.m. PT). More information on the Raptors' Summer League schedule and roster to come.
