Report: Dwane Casey is ‘primary target’ of Pistons coaching search

Dwane Casey was fired as the head coach of the Toronto Raptors following a 59-win season, which was the best mark in franchise history. From the sound of it, he will not be on the unemployment line for long.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Pistons have hired former Memphis Grizzlies executive Ed Stefanski to oversee the hiring of a new head coach and general manager, and Detroit’s top target is Casey.

Casey has been named a finalist for the NBA’s Coach of the Year Award, and the Raptors gave him an awkward congratulations for earning the honor. While Toronto was swept by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the playoffs, Casey is a respected coach who was largely able to turn things around in Toronto.

With Stan Van Gundy out, it makes sense that the Pistons would look to replace him with another experienced coach.
