Pistons, Dwane Casey agree to 5-year deal

Posted

DETROIT - Dwane Casey has agreed to a five-year deal to become head coach of the Detroit Pistons, two people familiar with the situation have told The Associated Press.

The people spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the move, which was first reported by ESPN.

Casey led the Toronto Raptors to a franchise-record 59 wins this year and helped them earn the top seed in the Eastern Conference for the first time. The NBA coach of the year finalist was fired shortly after Toronto was swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was 320-238 in seven seasons and is Toronto's winningest coach.

Detroit has been looking for a coach for a month since firing Stan Van Gundy, who was also its president of basketball operations.
