Initial indications, though, suggest that Casey will indeed be back next season, according to the latest whispers on the Toronto grapevine. The fact Ujiri scheduled his end-of-season press conference for Tuesday, instead of taking an extra week to evaluate things like Sam Presti did in Oklahoma City, would also seem to bode well for Casey.

Boston Celtics coach when asked if league had sent a memo on piggybacking at free throw line: “It was in an email from the league. So it basically said that if you do what [JJ] Redick did against the Clippers and then what the Wizards did against us where they jumped on Amir [Johnson’s] back and kind of wrapped around, then it would be a flagrant foul. At least that’s what I think I read. I get a lot of emails. Sometimes I read them. Sometimes I don’t. But I’m glad I read that one. So that was initially actually why we put Smart in the game so whoever went in I could tell, Hey, listen. If you go after the ball you have to do it in a way that is a basketball play. Otherwise it’s a flagrant foul.’ And so we wanted him to go after the ball. And he made a real push to get into the ball. And he and Jae kept it alive.”
