Raptors Dwane Casey named National Basketball Association coach of the year

Raptors Dwane Casey named National Basketball Association coach of the year”

The award, in its second year of existence, is voted on by the NBA's 30 head coaches.

Toronto finished with the best record in the NBA's Eastern Conference this season with a 59-23 regular-season record. "Congratulations to Dwane on this prestigious recognition". But the third straight early playoff exit at the hands of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers has brought reports a change is looming, with Dwane Casey of course on his way out as Raptors' coach.

In the meantime, the Raptors are coming off another crushing playoff defeat.

So despite a 320-238 regular-season record in seven seasons, Casey finds himself on the hot seat.

Casey, the winningest Coach in Raptors history, and his staff were the Eastern Conference Coaches at the 2018 NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles.

"To be honoured by your peers is incredibly gratifying, and I am so thankful to my colleagues across the league for this recognition", Casey said in a statement.

"I believe in Dwane Casey, I believe in the work he's done, it's not different than anything I've said a year ago", Ujiri said at the team's season-ending session with reporters. For the award's inaugural season past year, D'Antoni and Miami's Erik Spoelstra were selected as co-winners by their peers.

Whether he is still employed or not, Casey will receive his NBCA award in September. "To be recognized with an award that bears Michael H. Goldberg's name is very special". Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue called the idea of Casey losing his job "absurd", and throughout the year, visiting coaches have commented on Casey's success not only consistently improving individually and at the team level, but in completely reshaping the team's playing identity on the fly.

Casey, 61, has been an National Basketball Association coach since 1994, when he joined the Seattle SuperSonics as an assistant.

D'Antoni and Miami's Erik Spoelstra shared the NBCA award when it was presented for the first time last season.
