The Toronto Raptors are coming off the most successful season in the franchise’s 21-year history, and head coach Dwane Casey has reportedly been rewarded with a contract extension.
It’s said to be a three-year, $18 million pact.

The Raptors won 56 regular season games and reached the Eastern Conference Finals.
The Raptors essentially tore up the 2016-17 option on Casey’s deal and replaced it with a new three-year contract that runs through 2018-19, league sources said.
Under Casey, the Raptors had the franchise’s best season in history, which included 56 regular-season victories and a berth in the Eastern Conference finals. Toronto lost 4-2 in the best-of-seven series against Cleveland.
Casey finished fifth in the voting for NBA Coach of the Year in 2016. […] In his five seasons as Raptors coach, the franchise has improved its victory total every season, including three straight playoff appearances. The development of DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry into All-Stars has been paramount to the success of Casey’s program.
