Dwane Casey

Toronto reportedly has a shortlist of two candidates - 50-year-old Nick Nurse (who has been a Raptors assistant under Casey since the 2013-14 season) and top global head coach Ettore Messina, 58, who has been a San Antonio Spurs assistant under Gregg Popovich since 2014.

The Raptors fired Casey, 61, last month despite the team making the playoffs for five straight seasons. He posted a record of 152-176 overall in his four seasons in Detroit, guiding the Pistons to the playoffs only in 2015-16, when they lost in the first round.

After seven seasons at the helm, Casey was sacked by the Raptors in May despite leading Toronto to a franchise-best 59-23 record during the regular-season. His departure from Toronto was a hard decision for Raptors president Masai Ujiri, and Casey being favored for a new role quickly is hardly surprising, although he could have stayed at home earning $6.5 million and waiting for another opportunity next summer.




The Detroit Pistons announced today an agreement with Dwane Casey to join the organization as Head Coach.

With the Pistons, Casey has a lot of work to do.

Mr. Casey, who led the Toronto Raptors to 59 wins in the most recently completed season, is a finalist for the NBA's 2018 Coach of the Year Award, which will presented on June 25 at the league's awards dinner in Los Angeles. Casey was sacked on May 11 with one year remaining on his contract at a reported $6.5 million. Toronto won four Atlantic Division titles during Casey's tenure. "As a team, we are constantly trying to grow and improve in order to get to the next level". 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.
