With Dwane Casey gone, Raptors could consider these 10 coaching candidates

Masai Ujiri, President of the Toronto Raptors, made a big decision on Friday. "We celebrate everything Dwane has done for the organization, we thank him, and we wish nothing but the best in future".
Casey joined the Raptors in 2011 after spending the previous three seasons with the Dallas Mavericks as the assistant coach with the Dallas Mavericks.
Casey has spent the past seven seasons as the Raptors' head coach, accruing a 320-238 record (.573 win percentage) during his tenure. It might not have seemed like much at the time - Toronto went 23-43 in that lockout-shortened season - but it was the beginning of the most successful era in franchise history. It's not often a coach of the year award-winner is fired the year he won it, but that's exactly what happened with Casey.
The announcement comes two days after Casey was named Coach of the Year by his peers. Yet again, the team up north ran into LeBron James in the second round and got swept in four games, getting utterly embarrassed in the process.
So the Raptors fired Casey, praising him on his way out the door. Even if emerging from the Eastern Conference will be challenging going forward, Toronto will not lack for good candidates to replace Casey. When they were swept by the Cavs in 2017, many observers initially took Ujiri's famous "culture reset" comment to mean that he'd look for a new coach, rather than keeping Casey and changing their style of play.
"The last three years have been rough for us, competing against this team", saidDeMar DeRozan.
Masai Ujiri called firing Dwane Casey the most hard thing he's ever done. Cleveland's offense isn't exactly a Rubik's Cube of complexity, yet Casey's defense - the strength of his teams through the years - surrendered 118.5 points per game, including a whopping 128 in the second-round Game 4 eliminator. "A lot of my success, all of my success, I have to credit Casey".
Regardless of the team or matchup, James has had his way with the Raptors every time they have met in the playoffs over the last several years.
Casey won an National Basketball Association title as an assistant with the Dallas Mavericks, and was hired by Toronto in 2011 when the Raptors decided not to pick up the option on Jay Triano's contract.
