Now, the Detroit Pistons reportedly have interest, as Adrian Wojnarowskiof ESPN reported Casey is “a primary target” in Detroit’s search.

Wojnarowski also reported the Pistons hired Memphis Grizzlies executive Ed Stefanski as a senior adviser, and he’ll oversee the hiring of a coach and general manager.

Casey was named a finalist for the NBA’s Coach of the Year award alongside Brad Stevens of the Boston Celtics and Quin Snyder of the Utah Jazz after leading Toronto to a 59-23 record, the best mark of his seven seasons as the head coach.
