Dwane Casey has heard it already and he knows that over the course of the next year he will hear it dozens times more.
He is in the final year of his contract as coach of the Raptors a team that brought in a new general manager Masai Ujiri. His two-year mark with Toronto (57-91) is unimpressive leaving open the possibility that in a time in which owners are changing coaches as often as socks Casey could be next up on the firing line.
At this Casey shrugs.
“Everyone’s on a year-to-year contract” Casey told Sporting News from his home in Seattle. “I don’t care who you are we all are. I am going to coach the same as if I had a 10-year contract or a one-year contract. I can’t get caught up in that. … The good thing about it is I have a good relationship with Masai. He is originally from Seattle he went to high school there. So I have known him for a long time. In the end I am going to be judged by how we improve. I am not going to spend a waking moment worrying about my contract.”
