Raptors' Casey wins coach of the year honour from peers

Raptors' Dwane Casey reportedly on hot seat

Despite largely similar personnel to last season, especially at the top, coach Dwane Casey was able to overhaul the Raptors' offense as they moved from sixth to third while also improving from tenth to fifth on defense.

"Coach Casey has been unbelievable for our organization and I treat it the same exact way that we've done every year, including the years that we've done well - to go back and look at everything", Ujiri said.

Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey speaks to media at an end-of-season availability in Toronto on Wednesday, May 9, 2018.

Eight of the league's 30 head coaches received votes for the Goldberg award.

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens certainly made a strong case given Boston's success throughout a slew of injuries to key players during the season, but we'll see how the National Basketball Association media feels in June. However, after being swept by the Cleveland Cavs again, there have been reports that the Raptors are "leaning towards" a coaching change this offseason.

The smartphone borrowed a couple of design cues from the iPhone X like its notch and placing the cameras vertically on the back. While in the range of Apple presents the iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus and iPhone iPhone X , which is equipped with dual cameras .

You can't blame people for thinking that Casey's time with the team might be over. Casey is, without a doubt, the most successful coach in franchise history. "We got stuck at a certain point and we just continue to evaluate". "That's always been a real goal for us, that's the only things that matters".

Ujiri is "absolutely disappointed" by the way the season ended but said when he looks at the big picture, he likes what he sees.

Lowry met with reporters Tuesday after Toronto was swept by the Cavaliers in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. "We believe in what we're doing, we believe in the growth". We'll get better. We'll get better here. However, losing to the Cavaliers after blowing a 10-point lead (courtesy of USA Today) late in the fourth quarter and losing Game 1, the good vibes disappeared quickly for Dwane Casey and the Raptors.

Ujiri's wait-and-see approach didn't appear to bother Casey, who said he was aware of the questions about his job but didn't need Ujiri to provide a public backing.
