Casey to Return


Casey Set to Return as Head Coach for Toronto Raptors

For what to this point seemed to be a very murky offseason ahead for the Raptors, it appears to have just become slightly clearer.

Following a disappointing end to the season, team president Masai Ujiri stated that the team will need to undergo a culture change, but apparently that change will not start with the coaching staff. According to the head coach Dwane Casey himself, he has been assured that he would return next season.

“Yes … I think people mistook Masai’s comments,” Said Casey on TSN 1050 today. “We had a good meeting, and we’ve had meetings since then.”

Casey, who is the NBA’s fourth-longest tenured coach has been under fire from the Toronto fanbase as well as the media for quite sometime, yet remains the winningest coach in franchise history. With two more years remaining on his contract, Casey also owns one of the richest deals with a $6-million annual salary.

Whether the price tag is a big part of Casey returning or not, it seems like the culture reset is hinting to some changes to the roster.

With Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka, P.J. Tucker, and Patrick Patterson all set for free agency, the team may be in for quite the turnover.
