Union County native and former Kentucky Wildcat Dwane Casey has reportedly reached an agreement to become the new coach of the Detroit Pistons.
Casey led the Toronto Raptors to a franchise-record 59 wins this year and helped them earn the top seed in the Eastern Conference for the first time. The NBA coach of the year finalist was fired shortly after Toronto was swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was 320-238 in seven seasons and is Toronto’s winningest coach.
Detroit has been looking for a coach for a month since firing Stan Van Gundy, who was also its president of basketball operations.
