Casey agreed to a five-year contract, ESPN reported earlier in the day.

Despite missing the playoffs, Detroit traded for Blake Griffin and have a strong tandem of him and centre Andre Drummond.

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.
