Casey re-ups with Raptors

TORONTO (AP) - Raptors coach Dwane Casey has agreed to a three-year contract extension after Toronto won a franchise-record 48 games this season.

General manager Masai Ujiri says in a statement Tuesday that Casey has "done an excellent job both on and off the court." The Associated Press reported the extension on Monday.

This was Casey's third season with the team. Toronto won the Atlantic Division for the second time and ended a six-year playoff drought, losing to Brooklyn in seven games in the first round.

Casey also coached the Minnesota Timberwolves. He was an assistant to Rick Carlisle on the Dallas Mavericks team that beat Miami for the 2011 NBA championship. He joined the NBA as an assistant with Seattle in 1994.
