Casey reportedly gets 5-year deal to coach Pistons

Casey reportedly gets 5-year deal to coach Pistons

The AP reports that Casey, who was sacked last month after the Toronto Raptors were swept by Cleveland in the second round of the post-season, has reached an agreement on a five-year deal to become the Pistons' next head coach. The latter pulled his name from consideration following a second interview, making this the predictable outcome.

Mr. Casey, who led the Toronto Raptors to 59 wins in the most recently completed season, is a finalist for the NBA's 2018 Coach of the Year Award, which will presented on June 25 at the league's awards dinner in Los Angeles.

He replaces Stan Van Gundy, who was sacked by the Pistons last month.

Despite missing the playoffs, Detroit traded for Blake Griffin and have a strong tandem of him and centre Andre Drummond.

"In our meetings he displayed great insight into what this roster can accomplish, and great passion about our city and the team's role in bringing people together", Mr. Gores said. "He embodies our culture and will be a great representative for our franchise".

Detroit's playoff appearance in 2015-16 was their only one since 2008-09 when they were bounced in the first round by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Casey also coached the Timberwolves from 2005-07, where he amassed a 53-69 record. He has five years of coaching experience in Japan and has spent time around the game in Europe. He led Toronto to four Atlantic Division titles in five years, and three consecutive 50-win seasons.

The Pistons move means that there's only one vacant head coaching job left in the National Basketball Association - with the Raptors. The Pistons are still looking to hire someone to head basketball operation.
