[Introduction] Raptors coach Casey won the best head coach of the month, but Casey was not proud of it, but
It is still very low-key.
At the end of this season, Casey’s contract will also expire. The Raptors did not renew the contract in advance because Casey is the team’s third best coach of the month.
Casey won the best of the month
on January 6th, according to NBA official reports, Raptors head coach Devin Casey was awarded the best coach of the month. After knowing that he became the third best coach of the month in the history of the Raptors, Casey was very upset.
High-minded, but the language is still very modest.
“Compared to me, this means more to the team,” he said, “I say this from the bottom of my heart. This honor almost embarrasses me. These achievements are all achieved by everyone.”
It seems that everyone knows that it is impossible to get any proud and complacent words from Casey’s mouth, so they prefer to learn about Casey from the players’ mouths.
“Just look at him, he’s done an unbelievable job over the last few weeks, the last few months,” Lloris said. “He’s getting better every day, digging, learning about the team.
We have a stronger foundation for success. That award is proof of that.”
Although Casey won the best of the month, his contract did not come with it. At the end of this season, Casey’s contract will expire, but the team did not renew Casey’s contract in advance.
“When the time comes, everything will be resolved, maybe the playoffs. Now our concern is not winning or losing, but the growth of our team.” Raptors general manager Ujiri said.
“I can’t comment on everything, Coach Casey knows nothing has changed,”
A month ago, Casey was still on the verge of being fired, but a month later his status has changed dramatically.
After sending off Bargnani and Gay one after another, he no longer has to worry about the “use of all-stars”, and he can freely use his good skills.
So although the contract has not been renewed, Casey expressed that he does not care about it.
So far, the Raptors’ schedule is the toughest among the Eastern Conference teams, making it even more commendable to be able to achieve such results.
Before facing the Wizards, the Raptors scored 71 in the fourth quarter this season, ranking fourth in the league.
Although Casey has not yet renewed his contract, he has proven his worth. I believe Casey will continue to command the Raptors in the next few years.
