The AP reports that Casey, who was sacked last month after the Toronto Raptors were swept by Cleveland in the second round of the post-season, has reached an agreement on a five-year deal to become the Pistons' next head coach.
The Pistons recently hired the former Nets general manager Ed Stefanski to lead their search for new front-office executives. Local 4 has confirmed the report.
Casey's firing came after the Raptors recorded a franchise-best 59 wins in the regular season, earning the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference for the first time in history.

Casey was named coach of the year by the National Basketball Coaches Association, an award voted on by NBA head coaches. Under him, the Raptors won four Atlantic Division titles and advanced to the postseason in a franchise-record five consecutive seasons. But Toronto couldn't get past Cleveland, losing to LeBron James and the Cavs in each of the past three playoffs.
That's why when the Detroit Pistons showed interest in the 61-year-old Casey filling their coaching void left by the parting of Stan Van Gundy, he was intrigued. Van Gundy went 152-176 over four seasons as Detroit's coach, making the playoffs only once, and Detroit was 39-43 in 2017-18.
Detroit had shown interest in Casey and others for their vacancy, with current MI coach John Beilein and current San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Ime Udoka also reportedly being in the mix for the job.
