by June 11, 2018

Dwane Casey has agreed to a five-year deal to become the next head coach of the Detroit Pistons, according to ESPN‘s Adrian Wojnarowski:

Casey was fired by the Raptors a month ago despite leading the team to a franchise-best 59 wins this past regular season. In seven years with the organization, Casey posted an overall record of 320-238.

Detroit parted ways with Stan Van Gundy — as both coach and president of basketball operations — around the same time that Casey was let go by Toronto. Despite acquiring All-Star Blake Griffin at the 2018 trade deadline, the Pistons finished 39-43.
