Toronto • Dwane Casey will remain as the Toronto Raptors head coach, new general manager Masai Ujiri says.

There had been some question regarding Casey's future in Toronto following the hiring of Ujiri amid a front-office overhaul. Casey is in the final year of a contract extension signed following the 2011-12 season.

"I'm excited about moving forward and growing this team with Coach Casey," Ujiri said in a release.

The Raptors went 34-48 this season and missed the playoffs for the fifth consecutive year.

A Raptors front-office shakeup followed under new Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment CEO Tim Leiweke. Longtime general manager Bryan Colangelo was relieved of his GM duties on May 21, and replaced with Ujiri 10 days later.

Executive vice-president Ed Stefanski and scout Alvin Williams, one of the most popular players to ever suit up for Toronto, were also fired.
