    Default OFFICIAL: Casey Hired As Raptors New Head Coach (Press conf. in post #121)

    He's signed and all that's left is the announcement:



    Just got a call from a Toronto source saying that Mavericks assistant Dwane Casey is expected to be announced as head coach of the Raptors.

    It could be announced this afternoon.

    Every picture I see of Dwane Casey he is scowling, yelling, and looking generally quite unhappy. If he is that way with world champion Dallas, I think a heart attack is imminent in Toronto.

    Fourth tough shot in a row while on a cold streak:


    Failure to lay solid pick:


    Lack of foresight or effort to get positioning resulting in an offensive rebound allowed:


    Sixth blown play on defense of the game:

    I never had the impression that Triano was consulted about draft picks because there never seemed to be a clear impression of what the team was under him. With Casey, there is clarity that the focus is to improve defensively, so I would imagine he would be consulted on whom to draft if they are using that 5th pick. Does this mean the likely pick would be a defensive specialist like Leonard, Biyombo etc.? I'd like to think the Raptors are going to be pro active and go after a player rather than wait to see what the teams ahead of them are going to do.

    Nope.

    Haywood wasn't benched. He was injured.

    This comment is brilliant but depressing at the same time. Hilarious because it's so true but disappointing how negative the press/fans are towards our coaches and players.

    You'd have to define your terms but I suspect there will be disgruntled folks by the time pre-season ends (if there is a pre-season).

    In any case, yawn..... I wish Casey good luck but if the roster doesn't drastically improve he isn't going to be able to make much of a difference.

    As soon as he starts coddling Andrea, I'm hating.

    Default What do Mavs fans think?

    It starts....hopefully the championship doesn't yield us losing too many of our core.
    no one is "irreplaceable", bit I, for one, was completlely cognizant of the preperattion role, and in game adjustments by the "D" during his tenure here........We will miss him.
    Toronto = Coach Killer? I view the Raptors as the east coast version of the Clippers.
    Why would he take that job? Sometimes assistants only get one shot and Toronto never wins and is not a favorite destination for top free agents.

    You know, it's funny, because over 20 years into the Mavs' franchise their track record was horrendous.

    It all depends on if Colangelo gets him good soldiers.

    That Mavs team was excellent, and had players like Sam Perkins, Derek Harper, Rolando Blackman, Declef Scrempth, and Mark Aguirre. If they'd just managed to keep Tarpley's nose clean they might have taken it all. Then they sold the ball club to Ross Perot's runt and it went to the shite-house. Didn't really recover again until Cuban bought the team. So again we see that ownership is the most important thing for any sports franchise.
