Casey was the head coach of the Raptors since 2011, and took them to a conference finals appearance in the 2016 playoffs.

Dwane Casey has agreed on a five-year deal to become the coach of the Pistons, according to ESPN.

Detroit has missed the playoffs in eight of the last nine seasons.

Casey is fresh off coaching the Raptors to the best record in franchise history, finishing with 59 wins and 23 losses, also garnering the top seed in the Eastern Conference for the first time in team history. His departure from Toronto was a hard decision for Raptors president Masai Ujiri, and Casey being favored for a new role quickly is hardly surprising, although he could have stayed at home earning $6.5 million and waiting for another opportunity next summer.

Liverpool confirm Can departure
The 24-year-midfielder ends his four-year stay in Merseyside when he signed for the Reds from Bayern Leverkusen back in 2014. Liverpool have confirmed the departure of German worldwide Emre Can , as a move to Serie A champions Juventus looms.

With the Pistons, Casey has a lot of work to do.

Some Detroit Pistons fans have been very critical of Tom Gores for taking so long to find a head coach and general manager. Casey and the Raptors had high expectations for the team this year, but lost to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the semi-finals in an embarrassing sweep. "You got Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson, so you've got some good pieces there in Detroit".

Casey was sacked in May, shortly after being dubbed Coach of the Year by the National Basketball Coach's Association. He led Toronto to four Atlantic Division titles in five years, and three consecutive 50-win seasons.

"Dwane is one of the most successful and highly respected coaches in our league", Gores said in a statement. "As a team, we are constantly trying to grow and improve in order to get to the next level".
