    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.

    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.

    Default From Ryan Wolstat:

    #Raptors are working out Biyombo in NYC today so doubt they make Casey announcement today. No doubt they are getting his input on draft tho

    Not sure what logistics of Casey hiring would be. Guess is staff flies back from NYC tonight, presser is tomorrow, back to NYC that aft/nite
    Source: Twitter @WolstatSun

    Given his history with Kentucky, Dwane Casey surely knows (or knows people who can tell him) a ton about Brandon Knight #Raptors

    As I wrote/speculated late last wk, looks like Casey is the guy for TOR. No confirmation from Raps yet though. BC & Evs in NYC w/ Biyombo

    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.

    Default Dwane Casey To Be Announced

    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.

    Casey has interviewed twice with the Raptors and their decision has come down to Casey and Boston assistant Lawrence Frank.

    Pumped for this guy, here's hoping this is the first step to Raptors respectability.

    Toronto as Clippers East? Toronto has had 5 .500 or better seasons and has one a division championship since it's inception in 95. The Clippers have had 7 .500 seasons and never won their devision since their beginnings in 1970 as the Buffalo Braves. I'd say Toronto is doing much much better than the Clips historically.

    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:

    IMO hes a good signing who will get the most defensively out of guys like Demar and JJ who may have underperformed under Triano.

    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.

    Awesome. First job for Casey: convince the rest of the organization not to draft Vesely. If he does that, I'll consider is tenure to be off to a good start.
