The Toronto Raptors have extended head coach Dwane Casey through 2017 with a new three-year deal.

Now, Toronto turns its focus to its star point guard – unrestricted free agent Kyle Lowry.

“Kyle has had a phenomenal year,” said Raptors GM Masai Ujiri on Tuesday. “I thought Kyle was a huge, huge key to our season. For me, negotiating is easy if we want Kyle to be here and Kyle wants to be here.”
