Raptors Forward Precious Achiuwa Is Ready for Breakout Year

At times last season Precious Achiuwa’s erratic play became a bit of a running joke with Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse. The fourth-year coach would laugh it off as growing pains, the cost of giving freedom to Toronto’s sophomore forward.

You never know what you’re going to get when Achiuwa catches the ball, Nurse would say with a smirk.

Early in the season it was typically more bad than good from Achiuwa. The 22-year-old forward would usually drive head down into a contested shot or make some other ill-advised decision. The defense was typically there but the offense was rough, to put it mildly.
