The only coaching vacancy remaining belongs to the Toronto Raptors, and its their out-bound head coach filling the penultimate one.

The Detroit Pistons have reached an agreement with Dwane Casey to become the team's next coach, reports ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Despite missing the playoffs, Detroit traded for Blake Griffin and have a strong tandem of him and centre Andre Drummond.

But the franchise had its eyes on an National Basketball Association finals appearance this year after winning a franchise-record 59 games in the regular season, the second best record in the league behind only Houston. His departure from Toronto was a hard decision for Raptors president Masai Ujiri, and Casey being favored for a new role quickly is hardly surprising, although he could have stayed at home earning $6.5 million and waiting for another opportunity next summer.
