The Toronto Raptors recently parted ways with Dwane Casey and are in the process of seeking out their next head coach.

And it seems Raptors fans want San Antonio Spurs' Gregg Popovich or Becky Hammon to get the job.

Recent petitions popped up on, seeking signatures for the Spurs' long-time head coach or Hammon to leave S.A. and head up north of the border.

Support for the fact that Gregg Popovich, the highest paid NBA coach, should be the next coach for the Toronto Raptors.

Support for the fact that Becky Hammon (Assistant of the highest paid coach and first and best female NBA coach) should be the next coach for the Toronto Raptors

You got to applaud the effort but it's highly doubtful this movement will come to fruition as Pop is inked to the Spurs for quite a while.

However, with Hammon a major target for teams seeking to fill their head coaching spots, it is not out of the realm of possibility the Raptors will offer her an interview. She landed one with the Bucks and has reportedly been on the Pistons' radar.
