But the former Toronto Raptors coach, who led the team to its best five-year run in franchise history only to be fired last month after another disappointing postseason appearance, was probably more interested in showing he is still one of the top coaches in the the league.
"After careful consideration, I have decided this is a very hard but necessary step the franchise must take", Ujiri said in a press release.
"He's an outstanding man with impressive character".
Detroit has been looking for a coach for a month since firing Stan Van Gundy, who was also its president of basketball operations.
Casey posted a 320-238 (.573) overall record as Raptors coach. Casey also coached the Timberwolves from 2005-07, where he amassed a 53-69 record. 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.
Casey began his National Basketball Association career as an assistant coach with the Seattle Supersonics where he served from 1994-2005 under National Basketball Association head coaches George Karl, Paul Westphal and Nate McMillan. Dallas posted a 162-84 (.659) mark during that span, winning 50 or more games in each of his three seasons with the team.
