The Toronto Raptors are strongly leaning towards replacing Dwane Casey as head coach, according to sources.

The Raptors advanced to the second round of the playoffs but were again swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Casey is a leading candidate to win Coach of the Year as the Raptors secured the best record in the Eastern Conference and the second best record in the NBA.

Casey was already in place as head coach when Masai Ujiri was hired in 2013.
