Casey was fired from his position with Toronto almost immediately after the Raptors were swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the playoffs. He’d been mentioned as a leading candidate to land the Pistons job for a couple weeks before reportedly agreeing on the terms of this new deal.
In seven years as the head coach in Toronto, Casey led the Raptors to a record of 320-238 during the regular season and went 21-30 in the playoffs.
