Should Toronto Extend Coach Casey?
In Chicago, there’s much angst as to why the Bulls have yet to extend Tom Thibodeau, the NBA’s reigning coach of the year who took his team to the Eastern final last spring before losing to Miami.
In Toronto, there’s no chatter about (Dwane) Casey’s extension when there should be as Casey continues to prove his worth and his impact on a team that is more D-league than NBA-ready against an equally inept Bobcats side.
In fact, he’s making such a case that the Raptors should lock him up well beyond next season as more legitimate pieces are assembled.
Stability has been so fleeting in Raptorland in what seems like an eternity that a known commodity in Casey simply must be locked up for good.
Give him a five-year deal and send a message that a culture that demands defence will always be adhered to and enforced.
