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.

I am not going to spend a waking moment worrying about my contract.”
