Casey 22nd on SB Nation's NBA Coach Rankings

12

Considering he's yet to coach a game for the Toronto Raptors, it's encouraging to see Dwane Casey ranked 22nd on SB Nation's NBA Coach Rankings. From the piece: 22. Dwane Casey, Toronto Raptors (NR): Now you see why there are so many great coaches in this league. Casey shepherded a roster of Kevin Garnett and nobody else to a .500 record in 2006-07, then later emerged as the defensive architect for a championship team in Dallas. And yet, despite this, he's 22nd. Why so low? For a couple reasons: he needs to prove he can design a good offense, and I'm a bit skeptical if his defensive magic can work as well with a Raptors roster that has very few natural defensive players. I suspect Casey will be a success in Toronto, though, which tells you what you need to know about this list. Hard to argue there, and it's my belief that Casey will have an immediate impact on this club from day one. When that day one will be of course, is still anyone's guess...
