Toronto and coach Dwane Casey are expected to open talks about a contract extension soon according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

The Raptors hold a team option to bring Casey back next season, but Stein believes that the two sides will likely reach an agreement on an extension soon. After leading the Raptors to a 56-26 record in the regular season and a second place finish in the East, it's the right move for Toronto.

The league has fined Raptors coach Dwane Casey $25,000 for publicly criticizing officiating.

Casey lambasted the refs after Game 3, saying, "[Bismack Biyombo] is getting fouled so much. He's not getting the calls ... There's got to be some consistency." As noted by the Canadian Press, Game 1 of this series was the first time that DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry have failed to attempt a free throw in the same game, but Casey's arguments aren't likely to result in friendlier whistles.

Dwane Casey called LeBron James the best player in the NBA right now.

Casey also called the Cavaliers the best team in the NBA right now and while he could be giving LeBron and Cleveland a little lip service before the Eastern Conference Finals, the Cavs recent play backs up his statement. "We'll go in and play hard to compete against in my opinion probably the best team in the league right now as far as playing basketball, playing together, playing both ends of the floor and shooting the 3-ball," Casey said. "In my heart I feel like LeBron James is the best player in the NBA right now. They didn't ask me for my vote so I didn't give it to them."

Dwane Casey called his team's performance "unacceptable" vs. the Kings on Sunday.

"I’ll take the blame," Casey said. "I guess I didn’t tell them before the game how hard this was going to be. This team is pissed off. They’re upset. They’re going to come here like mad hornets. We came in like we’d done something in Miami. This is a tough league. If we don’t accept that, then it’s on us. Shame on us." Toronto has a nice chance to bounce back vs. Dallas on Tuesday.

Dwane Casey said he will think about making some changes to the Raptors starting lineup.

While Casey said the change wouldn't be big, he suggested the team may need to shake things up after Wednesday's loss to the Jazz. "If we don’t get a better start, the only alternative is to change the starting lineup," Casey said. "I don’t know if we’re at that point yet." It doesn't sound like Casey is ready to make a change just yet, but we'll keep an eye on changes with Luis Scola may be the player mostly likely to be impacted.

The Raptors officially hired Rex Kalamian, Andy Greer and Jerry Stackhouse as assistant coaches on Dwane Casey’s staff.

The Raptors lost some of their coaches this offseason, including big-man expert Bill Bayno. Chances are Stackhouse's name will wind up in one of Drake's verses soon.

Dwane Casey has added Andy Greer to his coaching staff.

Greer has learned under the tutelage of Tom Thibodeau and Jeff Van Gundy, and he'll run the defense in Toronto.

Raptors assistant coach Bill Bayno was let go on Monday.

He worked a lot with the big men, especially Jonas Valanciunas. Bayno will likely wind up with another team in the same capacity.

Dwane Casey is likely to return as the head coach of the Raptors next season.

Toronto management has suggested Casey make some changes to his assistant coaching staff, although at this point nothing has been finalized. Casey led the Raptors to a record of 49-33 during the 2014-15 season, but again, they failed to make it out of the first-round. For now, it seems that Casey will again be at the helm for the 2015-16 season.

Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri said the team is still in the process of making their decision on head coach Dwane Casey's future.

Casey still has two more seasons left on his contract, but it's currently unclear whether the Raptors will have him back for the 2015-16 season. "We're still going to go through the process of looking at the things we did well and the things we didn't do so well," Ujiri said. "When that happens, we will make a decision and move forward." There has been speculation that Ujiri is waiting to find out Tom Thibodeau's fate in Chicago before he makes a decision on Casey, so we'll be keeping a close eye on this situation.

With their season over, the Toronto Raptors will now decide whether or not to bring back head coach Dwane Casey.

Casey has one more season left on his contract, so general manager Masai Ujiri will have to decide whether to bring the head coach back of fire him. Despite the teams' shortcomings in this year's playoffs, Casey's players have mainly spoken out in support of their coach. "I know Case gets a lot of flak, [but] Case is a great coach," said DeMar DeRozan. "I’ve got to give him credit, he pushes us day in and day out [and] like I said, it could be one little thing. It’s like a Rubik’s Cube—you just got to find the right side to get everything else going." We'll keep an eye on the situation, but Ujiri is known to move deliberately so we may not have immediate clarity on his decision.

Dwane Casey said he may tweak his starting lineup based on matchups for the final 21 games of the regular-season.

"We’re sneakily doing that with some plays and sets, Pat [Patterson] starting the other night [against the Golden State Warriors] was a semi-experiment. We’re going to do some other things. We’ve still got to get our zone in for those situations, you may see some of that, we’ve got get that in." It sounds like Greivis Vasquez, James Johnson, Patrick Patterson, and Amir Johnson could be filtering in and out of the starting lineup as the Raptors close out the season.

The Raptors have been fined $25,000 for Drake's comments made to Kevin Durant during one of his concerts.

It is due to the league's anti-tampering rules because Drake has an official role with the team as an ambassador. Drake made the following comments at the end of his show, which the league is regarding as a public recruiting pitch: "You know, my brother Kevin Durant was kind enough to come to the show tonight and watch us. I just want him to see what would happen if he came to play in Toronto. Let him know what would happen." Durant then received an ovation from the crowd, which then launched into a KD chant.

Dwane Casey agreed to a three-year deal with the Raptors on Monday.

Casey and the Raptors took some big steps this season, but fell just short on Sunday in Game 7's loss to the Nets. During the season, they ranked eighth in the NBA for defensive efficiency and a lot of it has to do with Casey maximizing his players in the right scheme. They'll look to bring back Kyle Lowry next season and hope DeMar DeRozan can build off his breakout 2013-14 season.
