It's finally official. 

Today at 1 p.m., the Toronto Raptors will announce their new head coach and present him to the media.

Bryan Colangelo has struck gold with this one. After many years of having inexperienced, offensive-oriented coaches, Colangelo finally brought in an experienced, big-name coach who is a defensive mastermind in previous Dallas assistant coach Dwane Casey. 

Casey was one of the huge reasons why players like Dirk Nowitzki's defence improved this season, and why Dallas was able to slow down Miami's offensive onslaught. 

Considering the team was dead last in the league last year in defensive efficiency, this is a huge step forward. 

The coach is always a huge part of the defensive schemes, and Jay Triano just wasn't a good defensive coach. Casey will hold his players accountable, meaning for players like Andrea Bargnani, there's no much excuses defensively. 

One of the biggest offseason tasks is complete, and Toronto is already on their way to becoming a better defensive team.
