Dwane Casey

Earlier this year, the Raptors celebrated their 300th win under Casey, who also helped pave the way to their first-place finish in the Eastern Conference.

Casey, who was sacked by the Toronto Raptors after a second-round playoff loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers last month, was selected from a coaching pool that also included MI head coach John Beilein.

Casey posted a 320-238 (.573) overall record as Raptors coach.

Detroit parted ways with head coach and president Stan Van Gundy in May. "He embodies our culture and will be a great representative for our franchise".

The Raptors' head coach search, meanwhile, has reportedly be narrowed to two names: Raptors' assistant Nick Nurse, and San Antonio assistant Ettore Messina. "We're getting to work right away on the things that will make us all successful".

Dwane Casey has agreed to a five-year deal, league sources tell ESPN. Casey also coached the Timberwolves from 2005-07, where he amassed a 53-69 record. He led Toronto to four Atlantic Division titles in five years, and three consecutive 50-win seasons.

However, Toronto fell for the third straight season to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Detroit moved into a new downtown arena last season, but with the exception of some brief success after trading for Griffin, the team didn't create much buzz. They did bring in Ed Stefanski as a senior executive.

In 14 seasons as an National Basketball Association assistant, Casey's teams registered a 689-427 (.617) mark with eight campaigns of 50 or more wins. The Pistons are still looking to hire someone to head basketball operation.
