The Toronto Raptors managed to have their most successful season to day, finishing as the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. Their 56-26 regular season was led by head coach Dwane Casey, and his three-year extension on his contract signed in May 2014 is coming to an end.
Casey has seen moderate success with the Raptors in his five years at the helm, holding onto a .532 win/loss ratio (210-184). The Raptors have seen incremental improvements since Casey took over, and seems as though the Casey will reportedly stick with this team.
Dwane Casey extension talks began in earnest this week and, while no deal done yet, there's optimism in Toronto it'll happen by week's end.

Much of the teams recent strength is credited to how well Casey coaches his talented players. DeMar DeRozan and Bismack Biyombo led the team in points and blocks respectively, and they are both two prime candidates to test free agency this summer.
Hopefully the return of Casey will encourage his key players to stay with the organization.The departure of these three could ultimately leave the Raptors future to look bleak.
