Toronto’s Dwane Casey is the NBA’s coach of the year, as presented by the National Basketball Coaches Association.
The award named for longtime NBCA executive director Michael H. Goldberg is voted on by the league’s head coaches. The NBA also hands out a separate coach of the year award, which will be revealed June 25.
Casey won the NBCA award after a season in which Toronto went 59-23 and finished with the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Other coaches who received votes were Philadelphia’s Brett Brown, Houston’s Mike D’Antoni, Indiana’s Nate McMillan, San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich, the Los Angeles Clippers’ Doc Rivers, Utah’s Quin Snyder and Portland’s Terry Stotts.
