Somebody is going to hire Dwane Casey and be glad they did. He is the coach behind the defensive schemes that just earned Dallas a ring (or whatever they are getting).
Detroit is going to interview the Dallas assistant, according to Ken Berger at CBS.
Mike Woodson has been considered a front-runner there, former Pistons legend Bill Lambier was in the second chair and Kelvin Sampson and Lawrence Frank have been interviewed as well. Casey may be near the top of the list.
Casey was the former Timberwolves coach who did an underrated job there and really deserves another shot. It may or may not be with the reforming Pistons, but somebody needs to give him a shot.
