Just days before his firing, the 61-year-old was named as the NBA Coaches Association's Coach of the Year.

Casey coached the Raptors for seven seasons. His efforts were justified Wednesday, when it was announced that Casey is one of three finalists-along with Boston's Brad Stevens and Utah's Quin Snyder-for Coach of the Year.

Toronto, however, congratulated Casey on the team's official account. Toronto reportedly never made him an offer. As not too long ago, Dwane Casey was sacked by the organization.
