The lack of votes is even more apparent in the playoffs, as Stevens' Celtics have a commanding 3-1 series lead on the 76ers while Casey's Raptors were swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Now heading into his eighth season as Raptors coach, Casey's 320 regular season wins are far and away the most in franchise history with Sam Mitchell in second place with 156 and Lenny Wilkens in third with 113.

Like his year-end availability a year ago, Ujiri would not confirm whether head coach Dwane Casey will return. The Raptors have set franchise-record win totals in three of the past four years and finished atop the East for the first time this year.

The most recognition Stevens, 41, has gotten for his coaching efforts throughout his National Basketball Association coaching career are the three Coach of the Month Awards he has won for April 2015, February 2016 and November 2017. It was yet another successful regular season campaign for Dwane Casey and Toronto. But that success didn't quiet talk that perhaps Casey could be on his way out in Toronto after the team's loss to Cleveland.

Right now, that's all Casey can say for certain after meeting with Toronto President Masai Ujiri Wednesday morning, with little else clear about the coach's outlook with the organization. The formal announcement of who won the Red Auerbach Trophy for Coach of the Year, along with the announcement of league MVP and the like, will be made as part of the NBA Awards Show in Los Angeles on June 25. "We gotta know how teams are going to play us", he said. Casey earned high marks for reconfiguring his team's playing style to fit the pace-and-space era and developing one of the deepest rosters in the league this year.

Ujiri's wait-and-see approach didn't appear to bother Casey, who said he was aware of the questions about his job but didn't need Ujiri to provide a public backing. Unless you go out and sign Larry Bird or Michael Jordan to come here, it takes time.
