Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri voiced support for Dwane Casey on Wednesday but said the head coach will be evaluated, just like everyone else on the team, following a second-round sweep by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“I believe in Dwane Casey, I believe in the work he’s done. It’s not different than anything I’ve said last year,” Ujiri said at the team’s season-ending session with reporters. “I’m looking at everything, negative and positive … and how it all comes together.

Ujiri is “absolutely disappointed” by the way the season ended but said when he looks at the big picture, he likes what he sees.

“To me, it’s not doomsday. Where our program is, it’s not doomsday,” Ujiri said. “Now it’s my job. Put it on me. … We will get better here.”

Report: Suns ‘certainly open’ to Moving No. 1 Overall Pick

Phoenix Suns general manager Ryan McDonough says he is open to relinquishing his prized place in the NBA draft’s catbird seat — for the right return.

McDonough, in an interview on ESPN2’s NBA Draft Combine special on Friday, said the Suns haven’t ruled out the option of dealing away the No. 1 pick in June’s draft for a lower pick or even a worthy veteran.

“We’re certainly open to that. We’ll consider it,” McDonough said. “Obviously, we’ll have more information closer to the draft than we do today, after we go through the workout process and the interview process and we get the medical physicals. So we’re open to that.

“I think if you look around the NBA, as far as the veteran players, there are probably a few players we’d consider trading the pick for, not … just pick for player No. 1. So it’ll be a busy month for us.”

Sources: Lakers Telling Teams No Players Untouchable in Trades

As the Lakers head into a potentially franchise-changing offseason, their front office is keeping its options fully open.

While they like their young core and would prefer to keep those players growing together, they have told teams no player is untouchable in trades, according to multiple sources who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of trade and free-agent negotiations.

To be clear, the Lakers are not actively shopping any of their players. They are willing to listen to offers and could move one of them — even a member of the talented young cadre of Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram or Josh Hart — if an offer blows them away.
