Report: Dwane Casey agrees on five-year deal to become next Pistons head coach

The Detroit Pistons have reportedly agreed to terms with former Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey on a five-year deal to become the next head coach of the franchise.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported this news Monday morning.

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.
