Do you think Casey should be fired?
If yes, continue on.......
Gossip starting LATE this year it seems. Here is the run down on current coaching situation from ESPN Weekend Dime.
This is what ESPN has to say about Toronto and Casey - although it is more about Colangelo:
For the record, I think both Colangelo and Casey should be fired.The Raptors are limping to the end of a frustrating fifth straight season out of the playoffs, after coming into 2012-13 harboring genuine aspirations about competing for a playoff spot. But this time they're approaching the finish line in the unorthodox position of the coach having already seen his option for next season picked up, while the front-office chief awaits word on whether he's staying or going.
Team president Bryan Colangelo is still waiting to hear if he'll be extended or at least have his 2013-14 option activated. Dwane Casey has one season left on his original three-year deal because his 2013-14 option was invoked after last season and, as such, would appear to be on safer ground than Colangelo.
Yet getting a dependable forecast on what the Raptors will end up doing on the bench after another season of disappointment -- with the brief lift provided by the midseason Rudy Gay trade gambit fading fast -- will be easier to project once Colangelo's fate is known. And the signals there, so far, are mixed, with the new owners who run both the Raptors and hockey's Maple Leafs still settling into town but having already fired Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke.
So if you voted Casey to be fired, who to replace?
Coaches already fired this season:
Coaches who are not under contract next year from article:
Coaches rumoured on hot seat:
Vinny Del Negro
Coaches not currently employed:

Jeff Van Gundy
More assistant coaches/1st timers looking for their break:
You will notice Phil Jackson and Jerry Sloan are not on the list for what should be ridiculously obvious reasons (and SVG and JVG probably shouldn't be either).
If I missed anyone, throw it in.
