Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA 1m

Toronto has reached agreement on a three-year contract extension with coach Dwane Casey, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.

Wow, don't know if this is good or bad.

Pros: Grows with the team and hopefully improve and become a top contender.

Cons: Not able to be a top contender head coach, keeps making a lot of mistakes. In this case we are screwed.

I would have liked Masai to at least search for a new coach and see who is available, but I guess he believes in Casey.

He can easily fire him at any point if he feels that the coaching is not getting it done. Sam Mitchell was gone after completing only one year of his extension with BC. This extension does not mean that MU is married to Casey.

I personally hope this is a 2yr deal with a 3rd yr option and not 3 years guaranteed. Either way Casey deserved to be brought back, but he has to improve not only his play calling but also his rotations.

I only question his rotations...I don't think he had enough elite defensive minded players to stop certain offenses, even though he brought out great effort and schemes on D throughout the year. We ranked top 10 in offensive/defensive efficiency during the season which is amazing. Also we don't have a consistent elite ISO player yet, but I feel that Demar could definitely become one with more experience (better decision making, less pointless pump fakes) and improved handles.

He earned it. From a team that looked like it was going into tank mode (or as everyone thought) he pushed this team hard through ups and downs. Proved a lot of people wrong. If he can grow as a coach while this team is growing, why not?

And is it just me or Raptors RealGM have more emo posters? It seems like they were surprised... like as if the coach had NOTHING to do with this season's growth at all.

He definitely earned it. Surprised it was 3 years, though. Hope he can continue to improve on his in-game adjustments. He did improve in some areas, such as out-of-timeout sequences.

I am OK with that. He earned it. Yes we all scratched our head sometimes on some substitutions patterns, inbound plays.... still scratching... but hey, he earned it. Franchise high in wins, gotta give him some credit and guys played hard for him every game.

Wish we had looked into other coaches. Not the worst thing. But not the best either. As someone else mentioned, Hollins would have been a great shout. Memphis was a joy to watch under him.

i think he is a fantastic defensive coach but he needs to step up his game if this team is going anywhere. too many mistakes in the series that cost the raptors.
but still congrats to him

like it - give him a chance to grow along with the team
in 2 years we can revisit this - the 3 year will provide the comfort level he will need to assert himself fully.
