The New York Times reports that Casey has received the National Basketball Coaches Association's Coach of the Year award. The Raptors were swept out of the playoffs by Cleveland in the second round, the same Cleveland team that was outplayed by the Pacers across seven games in round 1.

Dwane Casey led the Toronto Raptors to the best regular season in franchise history.

Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey said his team had paid the price for not being able to recover from their shattering losses against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Casey, who was one of eight coaches receiving votes, per Stein, is expected to be announced as the victor of the NBCA version of the award later Wednesday. The Raptors have set franchise-record win totals in three of the past four years and finished atop the East for the first time this year.

After defeating the Wizards in the first round of the playoffs, Casey's Raptors have once again run into the buzzsaw that is LeBron James.

The N.B.C.A. introduced its own Coach of the Year Award last season, based on a vote of the league's 30 head coaches.

The pool of candidates for the mantel of Coach of the Year mantel is as deep as it's ever been.

"If they want us to break this up and start over, you might get fined for using this word "tanking", but no, we're not doing that here", Ujiri said. "We got stuck at a certain point".
