    Casey clearly has the players' loyalty and respect, which is important. Now that he has some job security he can afford to play his young players more rather than having to play for wins first and foremost. He's never going to be an offensive savant, but with Nick Nurse he's crafted a decent (if unspectacular) offensive system; iso-ball is more the result of young players panicking and making bad judgement calls than it is Casey saying "just throw the ball in the hoop."

    This was the right move.
    This is something that I think gets too often overlooked by critics. Casey struggles in games to make adjustments and be creative. He can fail at rotations and when to call a timeout.

    But he clearly has good relationships with his players and staff. Everyone clearly wanted to come into work everyday and get better as a team. That is a critical part of coaching and happens off the court, behind the scenes. You can have a brilliant tactician who can't develop that, where guys tune out the coach, and don't want to work hard. Where you're lucky if there are any hard practices in the regular season, and where relationships are all messed up with nobody wanting to be respectful and accountable with each other.

    We'll see details when they come out. Right now it seems to be 3 years straight up. Maybe it's actually 2 + a team option though. We'll see.

    Coaches contracts are a lot less stringent than player contracts. I'm they load those things up with Options. Its not like there's a Coaches Union.

    Good move. I'm fine with this. I can't say I agree with all of DCs moves, but assuming MU puts better pieces around him for him to play with, then it should work out alright.

    That is an "Okay" move, brings stability back next season and will make the players happy.

    Well maybe not Fields....

    I wonder how this will make pro-Ujiri but anti-Casey fans feel.

    Do you trust Ujiri's decision to retain Casey? Or does he lose the Mesiah nickname?

    As long as they only bring in veterans on this team that can actually play I'm good. Cause he loves to play veterans over young players but the veterans we have on our team are always third stringers. If we had good veterans I would have no problems. Also yes we need a better x's and o's assistant coach.

    Probably retained him though since they couldn't be bothered getting his big ass rock out of the locker room (not an innuendo, I mean the literal big ass rock)

    Only the future will determine that.

    I am sure now that they made it to the playoffs, expectations have increased for next season.

    We shell see how well Casey does now with expectations.

    The nightmare continues.... lose to the Nets, re-sign overrated one-way coach.

    not necessarily. growth doesnt have to be linear and MU knows that.

    Random, but can someone please post the gif of Casey swearing after a bad defensive play from earlier this season? The one where he goes "FUCK...................................SHIT"

    That never fails to make me smile.

    I believe in Masai. Good coach deserves reward. Doesn't necessarily mean he's the coach of the future, but if he can't get it done, someone else will.

    If there is an internal struggle between Masai and anyone, he will kill the opposition and eat them.

    Masai always wins.

    And this way I don't need to edit my Avatar. Casey remains as Captain B.J.Hunnicutt. MD.

    Ugh... Really not happy about this. At least it's only a 3 year deal. I was really worried this team played just well enough that we "had" to keep Casey. My worries came true.

    Anyways, I'm still really excited for the draft and next season. I don't think we'll make the improvements we could have made had we gotten a new coach, but I still think this team will get better with a few roster tweaks and some development from our young guys. The Atlantic division will be between us and Brooklyn next year, and a legit rivalry is born. Fuck Brooklyn.

    Not a perfect coach. At times, his decision making boggles the mind. But, players seem to respect him so there is clearly more than meets the eye. Hoping we get a reliable bench for Casey to use now.

    For the sake of my own mental well-being + general quality of life, I'm going to choose to believe that Masai knows what he's doing.
