Detroit Pistons NBA head coach search: Here’s what we know

It has been more than six weeks since Dwane Casey stepped down as the Detroit Pistons’ head coach. There are three finalists to replace him, but it’s unclear how close the team is to filling the vacancy. 

Whomever they select will lead what the front office hopes is the end stage of a rebuild period. The Pistons have ample cap space, the fifth overall pick in the 2023 draft, and will use both to try to move past this season’s league-worst 17-65 performance. 

The coach will be tasked with developing a group of young players led by Cade Cunningham and Jaden Ivey, a backcourt duo that could eventually help the franchise ascend in the clogged Eastern Conference.
