Dwane Casey Agrees to Five-Year Deal to Become Coach of Pistons

According to the report, Casey will receive a five-year deal.

"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", Gores said.

He replaces Stan Van Gundy, who was sacked in May.

Casey was sacked by the Raptors a month ago despite leading the team to a franchise-best 59 wins this past regular season. "He embodies our culture and will be a great representative for our franchise".

The Pistons will reportedly pay Casey $7 million per season and relented on control of the assistant coaching staff, giving Casey autonomy to hire his own lieutenants, ESPN reported.

Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey points against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first half of Game 4 of an NBA basketball second-round playoff series, Monday, May 7, 2018, in Cleveland.

Trump finds time to tweet before meeting with Kim Jong Un
Kim smiled as he took a selfie with Singapore's Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan at the scenic waterfront Gardens by the Bay. They came with scores of aides, bodyguards and diplomats in tow: Donald Trump from Washington, Kim Jong Un from Pyongyang.

Well, today you can mark head coach off that list.

"After careful consideration, I have decided this is a very hard but necessary step the franchise must take", Ujiri said in a press release.

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

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.

The Pistons move means that there's only one vacant head coaching job left in the National Basketball Association - with the Raptors. He led Toronto to four Atlantic Division titles in five years, and three consecutive 50-win seasons. During his junior season, the Wildcats amassed 30-2 record and captured the 1978 NCAA Championship. He and his wife, Brenda, have a daughter, Justine and a son, Zachary.
