Dwayne Casey Favorite To Become Raptors Coach

by June 18, 2011

Seems like defensive-minded assistants are getting the leg-up in open coaching gigs—Casey was mastermind behind the Mavericks’ tough defense this season. From CBC Sports: “Various media outlets were reporting Saturday that Dallas Mavericks assistant Dwayne Casey is the clear favourite to land the job. The former Minnesota Timberwolves head coach had been rumoured to be one of the final candidates along with Boston Celtics assistant Lawrence Frank to fill the vacancy after the Raptors relieved Jay Triano of his head coaching responsibilities at the beginning of June.”
