Dwane Casey is Masai Ujiri's guy, regardless of what happens in the playoffs. Should that be the case?

Win or lose, Dwane Casey is Masai Ujiri's guy.

Speaking to media Wednesday, the Toronto Raptors general manager threw his support behind his head coach.

Casey, who won an NBA title as a member of the Dallas Mavericks coaching staff in 2011, has led the Raptors to three consecutive playoff appearances. However, the team has not yet advanced past the first round.

Is Ujiri's faith misplaced, or is Casey's regular-season success enough to keep him around?
