It's official.

The Toronto Raptors have inked head coach Dwane Casey to a new 3 year deal which will keep him with the team through the 2016-17 season.

Casey guided the Raptors to a team-record 48 victories and an Atlantic Division championship in 2013-14.

He incorporated four new players into the roster following an early December trade and from that point forward led the Raptors to the best mark in the Eastern Conference at 41-22. He directed the club to eight victories in the final 11 games in December and was rewarded with NBA Eastern Conference Coach of the Month honours. His 2013-14 squad finished in the Top 10 in the NBA in defensive field goal percentage (.450) and points allowed (98.0), and also posted a franchise-best 22 road wins.

The Raptors eventually lost to the Brooklyn Nets, in a seven game marathon series, in the first round of the playoffs.
