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

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

The team had reportedly narrowed down its search between Casey and John Beillin of the University of MI last week.

Reigning NBA Coach of the Year Dwane Casey.

Detroit had been looking for a coach for more than month since firing Stan Van Gundy, who was also its president of basketball operations. "He embodies our culture and will be a great representative for our franchise". Under Casey, the Raptors reached the Eastern Conference Finals during 2015-16 season, but away from that feat, his teams were swept three times in the postseason, including two years in a row by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Or the man who once thought he would one day enter the media world could have finally dabbled in television or radio off the notion that the 2018 Coach of the Year award, as voted by his peers, certainly would have something to add to the bajillion outlets covering sports today. Toronto won four Atlantic Division titles during Casey's tenure.

He coached the Minnesota Timberwolves for a little more than one season, going 53-69. Part of getting the Pistons back on track will be fixing their offence, which ranked 22nd in both field goal percentage and points per game last season. He also has experience in the league as an assistant with Dallas and Seattle.

Some Detroit Pistons fans have been very critical of Tom Gores for taking so long to find a head coach and general manager. This past season, Detroit traded for All-Star forward Blake Griffin, who they are hoping to build their roster around alongside Andre Drummond. In the summer of 1998, he helped to guide Japan to its first appearance in the FIBA World Championship, which marked a first for Japan in over 30 years.

Casey earned a degree in business administration in 1979.
