Despite Franchise-Best Season, Toronto Opts to Move on from Casey

All good things come to an end.

After being dubbed coach of the year among his peers and leading the Toronto Raptors to their first ever Eastern Conference one-seed, Head Coach Dwane Casey was dismissed by the Raptors. With another disappointing playoff run under his belt, culminating with one last sweep at the hands of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Raptors chose to move into a different direction.

Despite instilling a new culture alongside Masai Ujiri and the Raptors’ two All-Stars Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, sometimes even great coaches have to be replaced in order to bring a new voice into the locker room. This is exactly what the Raptors opted to do to start their offseason.

As the Raptors begin to move into a different direction, it will be interesting to see how Ujiri will be able to put together an even better product come next season.
