"Jesse did a good job not only in Denver, but also with James Harden in Houston," Casey said. "He has a good relationship with players."

The team also promoted Jama Mahlalela to assistant coach following two seasons working as director of player development. Mahlalela was a four-year starter at the University of British Columbia and an assistant coach for four seasons at the University of Toronto.

"Jama is one of the best player relations and player development guys that we have," Casey said. "I've seen the talent he has as far as teaching on the court and working with guys."

Casey said the team is looking to make more additions to the coaching staff. He enters his third season as Raptors head coach with a 57-91 record.
