The Toronto Raptors were eliminated in the first round of the NBA’s Eastern Conference playoffs on Sunday, but head coach Dwane Casey received some good news today after getting a three-year extension, according to Doug Smith of the Toronto Star.

In his third season with Toronto, Casey led the Raptors to a 48-32 record and the Atlantic Division title but were knocked off in seven games against the Brooklyn Nets.
The Raptors won a combined 57 games in the first two seasons under Casey, but the third year saw big improvements from former first round picks, DeMar DeRozan and Jonas Valanciunas and Kyle Lowry‘s second season in Toronto resulted in a career year as he posted a career-best 17.9 points, 7.4 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game.
