Dwane Casey Reportedly Expected Back with Raptors

There were some rumblings that Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey was on the hot seat after the Raptors’ embarrassing first-round series loss to the Washington Wizards, but it looks like Casey is safe for next season:

Casey took over as head coach of the Raptors in 2011 and has seen the team improve in terms of record each season. Toronto has made the postseason the last two years after failing to reach the playoffs for five consecutive seasons, but both appearances resulted in first-round flameouts despite having a higher seed.

This year was especially brutal. The Raptors started great but struggled down the stretch of the season and were swept away by the Wizards, who also had their own issues during the second half of the year.

The awful loss has raised questions about the makeup of the team and about Casey, who signed a three-year extension last May. But for now at least, it looks like he’ll be back, and that makes sense even with what happened in the playoffs this year. Now, if there’s no improvement next year, perhaps a move can be made.
