TORONTO - Less than 24 hours after the end of a stirring season, the Raptors have inked head coach Dwane Casey to a three year contract extension, leauge sources confirmed early Monday evening.

Casey’s future had been speculated upon before the season even started.

He had worked wonders in his first year at the helm, completely turning around the team’s defensive mentality in 2010-11 and the team immediately picked up his third-year option. It was a no-brainer at the time, as the future looked extremely bright.
