Raptors awkwardly congratulate fired Dwane Casey on Coach of Year nomination

On Wednesday the National Basketball Association announced the finalist for the head coach of the year and Casey was among the top three, despite not having a team right now.

The Toronto Raptors fired Dwane Casey after getting swept in the Eastern Conference Semifinals by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Because of that, it was a bit odd to see the Raptors congratulate Casey on being announced as a finalist for NBA Coach of the Year.

The responses were predictably of shock and dismay.

That regular-season success wasn't enough for Casey to keep his job, though, and he was sacked after seven years on the job. It's understandable the team is appreciative of his efforts during that time. With that said, this tweet certainly comes across as peculiar.
