Pistons Expected to Hire Dwane Casey as Head Coach

The Detroit Pistons will reportedly hire Dwane Casey as the team’s next head coach, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Casey agrees to a five year deal with the Pistons after being fired by the Toronto Raptors a month ago.

Casey will be replacing Stan Van Gundy, who went 152-176 with the Pistons.

Despite Toronto having the best record in the Eastern Conference at 59-23, the Raptors were still no match for the Cavaliers, getting swept by LeBron & co., 4-0.

This latest loss to Cleveland makes it the third consecutive season the Raptors were eliminated by the Cavaliers.

Toronto went 320-238 under Casey, with five postseason appearances.

Now, Casey will take his head coaching talents to the Detroit Pistons who boast Andre Drummond, along with the mid-season acquisition of Blake Griffin.
