Dwane Casey, Toronto Raptors*– Newly installed general manager Masai Ujiri has been charged with the task of turning the Toronto Raptors around and his first order of business was to deal Andrea Bargnani to the New York Knicks in a move that the club hopes amounts to addition by subtraction.As in the case with most incoming general managers, Ujiri is likely to want to choose his own coach.

Like Danny Ferry did with Larry Drew in Atlanta, though, Ujiri wants to give Dwane Casey the opportunity to retain his job, of course.There was speculation earlier this summer that Casey was on his way out of Toronto since Ujiri took over and purged a lot of his predecessor Bryan Colangelo’s basketball operations staff, but Casey remains. Entering the final year of his contract and with a team that should have enough talented pieces to make a run at one of the East’s final playoff spots, Casey enters the 2013-14 season with a lot of weight on his shoulders.

Rudy Gay, DeMar DeRozen, Jonas Valanciunas and youngster Terrence Ross will have their work cut out for them if Casey is to remain in Toronto past this season.
