But what if, Masai and Casey had a talk over the summer and this is the plan they came up with. Masai guaranteed Casey a extension at the end of the season if he made it look like the Raptors were trying, playing well the first half or majority of the game then ultimately losing?

What if his in game decisions, substitutions, clock management (not fouling) etc are done purposely for the Tank with no fear of losing his job because of this "deal"?

MU also said that Casey wont be judged on wins or losses but other aspects of the play of the team. Our defense and rebounding has gotten better, Demar is playing at a higher level, and JV is no longer foul prone etc.

Surely he has to be purposely tanking and not this bad of a coach?

No. If the players ever thought of that as a possibility, essentially messing with their careers, word would get around the league and no player would want to play here.
