Raptors Confirm Dwane Casey’s Contract Extension

Durham, ON, Canada / channel12

TORONTO – The Toronto Raptors have confirmed head coach Dwane Casey’s contract extension.
The team says the two sides have agreed “on principal terms” of a three-year deal through the 2018-19 season.
There was no confirmation of a dollar figure from the team but reports last week said the agreement was worth US$18 million.
Casey oversaw the team’s most successful season in 2015-16, steering the Raptors to a franchise-record 56 wins in the regular season and a berth in the Eastern Conference final.
Raptors GM Masai Ujiri promised last week that the deal would get done “in his sleep,” and he worked quickly to make it happen.
He said in a release today that Casey has “done an excellent job leading our teams to success on the court and with helping us develop a winning culture throughout our organization.”
