The Raptors fired Casey, 61, last month despite the team making the playoffs for five straight seasons. 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.

Reigning NBA Coach of the Year Dwane Casey.

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

Casey's Raptors teams were the winningest in franchise history, as the 2017-18 group broke the franchise record for regular-season victories (set in 2015-16) with 59. "He embodies our culture and will be a great representative for our franchise".

Dwane Casey coaches the Toronto Raptors against the Washington Wizards during the first round of the playoffs on April 17, 2018. The last time the Pistons made the postseason they were swept in the first round by the Cavaliers in 2016.

"I'm confident that this team has the pieces in place to compete at a very high level", Casey said.

Prior to his appointment with Toronto, he served as head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves from 2005-07. He led Toronto to four Atlantic Division titles in five years, and three consecutive 50-win seasons.

Despite missing the playoffs, Detroit traded for Blake Griffin and have a strong tandem of him and centre Andre Drummond.

The Pistons recently hired the former Nets general manager Ed Stefanski to lead their search for new front-office executives. 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. During his junior season, the Wildcats amassed 30-2 record and captured the 1978 NCAA Championship.
