He's also one of the front-runners for National Basketball Association coach of the year, which will be announced in late June.
The National Basketball Coaches Association announced Casey as the victor Wednesday, two days after the top-seeded Raptors were swept by the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
"To be honoured by your peers is incredibly gratifying, and I am so thankful to my colleagues across the league for this recognition", Casey said in a release Wednesday.
The Toronto Raptors had another very successful regular season this year, with a franchise-record 59 wins on their way to the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.
So despite a 320-238 regular-season record in seven seasons, Casey finds himself on the hot seat.
"Dwane Casey once again maximized the Toronto roster to achieve the top record in the Eastern Conference", Carlisle said. When informed of those rumors, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue wondered why Toronto would ever consider letting Casey go. Casey won plaudits throughout the season for overseeing a dramatic change in the Raptors' playing style, which emphasized a faster pace, more passing and a greater reliance on 3-point shooting.
Facing a potential sweep at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second year in a row on Monday night, there's always a chance that Game 4 could be Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey's final game with the organization. The Michael H. Goldberg NBCA Coach of the Year Award trophy will be presented to him at the NBCA Annual Meeting of Head Coaches in September.
"I've said what I have to say about that", Ujiri said of the team's coaching situation. Mitchell's four seasons and change were the second longest tenure in franchise history before Casey's.
D'Antoni and Miami's Erik Spoelstra shared the NBCA award when it was presented for the first time last season.
