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.
Detroit acquired Blake Griffin in a blockbuster trade this past season and that wasn't enough to push Detroit into the playoffs. His teams qualified for the playoffs in 11 of those 14 seasons.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Pistons Owner Tom Gores and senior adviser Ed Stefanski "sold Casey with an aggressive contractual commitment and a case that together, they could make the Pistons a perennial playoff team in the Eastern Conference".
