Casey led Raptors to a 48-win regular season before first round exit.
The Toronto Raptors have reportedly agreed terms on a new three-year deal with coach Dwane Casey after their successful season came to an end on Sunday.
According to ESPN, sources have claimed that the franchise have wasted little time in tying down their coach to a new long-term deal given their progress this year.
After a 48-win regular season, Casey secured the No.3 seed in the Eastern Conference and took the Brooklyn Nets to a Game 7 in their opening round playoff series.
With the likes of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan continuing their individual progress and improvement, Casey has undoubtedly played a significant role in improving the fortunes of the organisation, and the city has undoubtedly responded to their efforts on the court.
The Toronto Star are understood to have been the first to report the new contract, and it is quite a remarkable turnaround for Casey considering that many expected him to be on the block after being inherited by new Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri at the start of the season.
However, a trade deal sending Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings began a chain reaction which resulted in the Raptors winning the Atlantic Division with the highest single-season win total in franchise history.
Both Lowry and DeRozan had career years with the latter making the Eastern Conference All-Star squad while Lowry was widely regarded as the most controversial snub for the game back in February.
Nevertheless, both have credited Casey for their rise this season, and the Raptors will now hope to build on the momentum that had this season and take into another successful year in 2015.
