Casey is the front-runner for the NBA's coach of the year award to be presented later this month. "There is a lot of talent, a solid core and some exciting young players eager to get better".

Detroit had been looking for a coach for more than month since firing Stan Van Gundy, who was also its president of basketball operations.

Casey also coached the Timberwolves from 2005-07, where he amassed a 53-69 record. His defensive unit held opponents to 96.0 points per game (6th in the NBA) and.450 percent shooting from the field (8th in the NBA) during the 2010-11 regular season.
