Toronto reportedly has a shortlist of two candidates - 50-year-old Nick Nurse (who has been a Raptors assistant under Casey since the 2013-14 season) and top global head coach Ettore Messina, 58, who has been a San Antonio Spurs assistant under Gregg Popovich since 2014.
Earlier this year, the Raptors celebrated their 300th win under Casey, who also helped pave the way to their first-place finish in the Eastern Conference. The 61-year-old was the most successful coach in Raptors history, with a 320-238 record, three 50-win seasons and four Atlantic Division titles.
Casey replaces Stan Van Gundy, who was sacked last month after four seasons with the team. The club was connected to Casey early in their interview process, with University of MI head coach John Beilein also in the mix for the job.
Some Detroit Pistons fans have been very critical of Tom Gores for taking so long to find a head coach and general manager. He took over a Raptors team in 2011 that was coming off a 22-60 season and built them into a regular-season beast, but he could never get over the LeBron James hump and was let go after the latest playoff bust. If healthy, the Pistons do potentially have an intriguing nucleus with Griffin, Jackson and Andre Drummond. Last month, he was named the Coach of the Year by the National Basketball Coaches Association. They did bring in Ed Stefanski as a senior executive to assist in searches for a new coach and head of basketball operations.
Prior to his appointment with Toronto, he served as head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves from 2005-07. He has five years of coaching experience in Japan and has spent time around the game in Europe.
