The Detroit Pistons have a new coaching staff.
According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Detroit manager Dwayne Casey is resigning.
The possibility of manager Casey stepping down has been discussed since last week. It may have been a long time since the story came out locally. He was mentioned not for a hard job, but for a job transfer, and finally decided to step down from his final position. Director Casey moves to the secretariat.
Detroit has also had a disappointing season this season. Although extensive reconstruction has begun, there has been little sign of improvement. To make matters worse, Cade Cunningham, the best prospect who played an active role in the early part of the season, ended the season with an injury, leaving a deep regret. Several players were injured, and it was not easy to build power, such as parting ways with Nerlins Noel during the season.스포츠토토
Detroit is 17-64 so far this season. Just as the Houston Rockets fell to last place in the Western Conference early on, Detroit did not escape from last place in the Eastern Conference all season. It may be a natural process because it is in the process of being reorganized, but several limitations have been exposed. Accordingly, it is judged that Director Casey also made a decision.
Considered one of the best virtuosos in the league, he took over as Detroit manager in the summer of 2018. After being fired from the Toronto Raptors, he immediately became the manager of another team. In his first season, he led his team to a 41-41 record, leading them to the playoffs. However, after that, Blake Griffin (Boston) suffered from an injury, and his performance declined as Andre Drummond (Philadelphia) and Reggie Jackson (Denver) parted ways.
From the 2019-2020 season, the second year after Casey took over as manager, to this season, Detroit’s best season was the last season. It was all about winning 23 last season. Even more so, achieving 20 wins this season has also been a waste, and so far, the record has not been able to find a clear solution, such as an average of 20 wins in four seasons.
Manager Casey managed 121 wins and 262 losses in 383 regular season games during his five seasons with Detroit, and lost all four games in the playoffs. The difference between his performance compared to when he took the baton with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Toronto is significant. He also served as an assistant coach with the Seattle SuperSonics (now Oklahoma City) and the Dallas Mavericks, where he helped Dallas win championships.
Meanwhile, Detroit is looking for its next manager. Coach Charles Lee (Milwaukee) and former head coach Ime Judoka are being discussed, while coach Adrian Griffin (Toronto) and coach Chris Quinn (Miami) are being discussed. In addition, Detroit general manager Troy Weaver is also considering candidates for coach Josh Longstaff (Chicago) and coach Brian Keef (Brooklyn), who have worked together at the Oklahoma City Thunder.
