Ex Raptors Coach Dwane Casey Lands New Coaching Job

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.

Casey is fresh off coaching the Raptors to the best record in franchise history, finishing with 59 wins and 23 losses, also garnering the top seed in the Eastern Conference for the first time in team history. In seven years with the organization, Casey posted an overall record of 320-238.

Van Gundy held the title of both head coach and president of basketball operations, which will now be overseen by Ed Stefanski. MI coach John Beilein was a finalist for the job before withdrawing his name from consideration last week and San Antonio Spurs assistant Ime Udoka also was a candidate.

Detroit will operate with an All-Star frontcourt of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, but will have to figure out the pieces around them in hopes to take the team into playoff contention.

"I am excited and honored to join the Detroit Pistons, a franchise with a championship history and a roster that is ready to win now", Casey said in a statement. An injury to point guard Reggie Jackson derailed what looked like a promising season.

Dwane Casey didn't have to wait long to find a new home.


Detroit moved into a new downtown arena last season, but with the exception of some brief success after trading for Griffin, the team didn't create much buzz.

He coached the Minnesota Timberwolves for a little more than one season, going 53-69.

This led to Casey getting fired, even after being awarded Coach of the Year by his peers.

In 14 seasons as an National Basketball Association assistant, Casey's teams registered a 689-427 (.617) mark with eight campaigns of 50 or more wins. He also has experience in the league as an assistant with Dallas and Seattle.

However, Toronto fell for the third straight season to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
