Casey was sacked in May, shortly after being dubbed Coach of the Year by the National Basketball Coach's Association.

But the franchise had its eyes on an National Basketball Association finals appearance this year after winning a franchise-record 59 games in the regular season, the second best record in the league behind only Houston.

The Pistons recently hired the former Nets general manager Ed Stefanski to lead their search for new front-office executives.

Detroit's playoff appearance in 2015-16 was their only one since 2008-09 when they were bounced in the first round by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Reigning NBA Coach of the Year Dwane Casey agreed to a five-year deal to become coach of the Detroit Pistons on Monday.

Dwane Casey coaches the Toronto Raptors against the Washington Wizards during the first round of the playoffs on April 17, 2018. Toronto won four Atlantic Division titles during Casey's tenure. Casey also coached the Timberwolves from 2005-07, where he amassed a 53-69 record.

In a series of ESPN interviews late last week in conjunction with the N.B.A. finals, Casey spoke optimistically of the Pistons' job and potentially working with the Detroit frontcourt stars Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond. 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.

According to TSN's Josh Lewenberg, Casey seriously considered taking a year off but bought into an aggressive recruitment from Pistons ownership. He also has experience in the league as an assistant with Dallas and Seattle.
