After meeting with Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri, Raptors head coach Dwane Casey is operating under the assumption he'll return for the 2018-19 season.
Sportsnet's Michael Grange shared Casey's thoughts Wednesday:
The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor reported some NBA executives believe the Raptors will fire Casey after the Cleveland Cavaliers swept the Eastern Conference's No. 1 seed in the second round of the playoffs.
Although the Raptors had the best record in the Eastern Conference (59-23), a coaching change may be necessary in order to shake things up.
If recent history is any indicator, Casey's comments offer little reassurance regarding his future in Toronto. Ben McAdoo told reporters Dec. 3 that he was going to coach the New York Giants "as long as my key card works." The team fired him a day later.
