Dwane Casey Rumors
Josh Lewenberg: A couple Raptors roster/rotation notes based on the depth chart I just tweeted (obviously a lot can change between now & opening night). 1) Raptors signed Sullinger with the intention of starting him at the 4. Not set in stone but it’s his job to lose, I’m told. Like last year, Patrick Patterson may end up playing bulk of PF mins but, rightly or wrongly, they believe he’s better suited coming off bench. 2) Lucas Nogueira is expected to get first crack at earning backup C mins, given experience, but leash wont be long. Jakob Poeltl could push him in camp.
Toronto Raptors President and General Manager Masai Ujiri announced Tuesday the club and head coach Dwane Casey have agreed on principal terms of a three-year contract extension through the 2018-19 season. The past season, Casey guided the Raptors to a team-record 56 regular season wins, an Atlantic Division championship and a berth in the Eastern Conference Finals.
