  • Dwane Casey

Former head coach of the Toronto Raptors, and current Coach of the Year, Dwane Casey has agreed to a five-year contract, worth about seven million ler year, to coach the Pistons.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news Monday, saying it's a 5-year deal. The latter pulled his name from consideration following a second interview, making this the predictable outcome.

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.

Detroit parted ways with Stan Van Gundy - as both coach and president of basketball operations - around the same time that Casey was let go by Toronto.

Detroit will operate with an All-Star frontcourt of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, but will have to figure out the pieces around them in hopes to take the team into playoff contention. In our meetings he displayed great insight into what this roster can accomplish, and great passion about our city and the team's role in bringing people together.

White House economic adviser Kudlow has heart attack
Trump hired him in April to replace Gary Cohn as the head of the National Economic Council, reportedly because he enjoyed Mr. Kudlow's wife, Judy Kudlow, said her husband was "doing fine", Washington Post reporter Robert Costa said on Twitter.

He coached the Minnesota Timberwolves for a little more than one season, going 53-69. "He embodies our culture and will be a great representative for our franchise".

Casey, 61, has served as a head coach, associate head coach or assistant coach in the National Basketball Association for 23 of the past 24 years.

The Detroit Pistons have a new head coach, despite the fact the team doesn't have a general manager or team president.

The Raptors dispatched Washington in six games in the first round of the post-season, but couldn't win a game against nemesis LeBron James and his Cavaliers in the conference semifinals.
