Former Toronto Raptors head coach Dwayne Casey was on Sirius XM NBA Radio today and he talked briefly about San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan.

“DeMar DeRozan is like a son. I love the young man,” Casey said.

According to Casey, DeRozan was one of the first players he met when he arrived in Toronto and he discussed DeRozan’s growth over the years.

“He’s a big part of what I look back on in Toronto, watching that young man grow, watching him become a 3-4-time All-Star, All Pro in his career,” Casey said. “When I first got there, when he ran a pick and roll he’d throw that joker three rows up in the stands.  The last two, three years he was our best pick and roll player. We put him in pick and rolls just as much as Kyle [Lowry], running the show because of the size, passing ability and that type of thing.”
