Casey, who was a COY candidate last year, was fired after leading the Raptors to a franchise record 59 wins and a #1 seed in the East. He led Toronto to a playoff appearance in five consecutive seasons.
John Beilein (once a candidate before withdrawing from consideration last week) and Ime Udoka were believed to be the others in position to land the Detroit job.
