Williams will replace Dwane Casey, who has left his coaching career to take a position in the franchise offices. He will sign this pact to the 51 years old. After playing nine in the NBA, he has already been a head coach on the benches of pelicans and those mentioned suns. In Phoenix, he ran into a new time despite having led the team to the Finals in 2021: the entry as owner of Mat Ishbia, who wanted to turn the situation around and asked for his dismissal, and the improvement in the squad, with Durant adapting to a template that already included Booker, Ayton or Chris Paul, they finished with him. He also has experience as an assistant to other coaches: in the League, with the Blazers, Thunder and 76ers; internationally, with the United States team for the cycle from 2014 to 2016 with Mike Krzyzewski. ANDn the Pistons must value all the young talent they have (Marvin Bagley, 24; James Wiseman, 22; Jaden Ivey and Jalen Duren, with only one year of experience; Isaiah Stewart, 22; plus the fifth pick in the 2023 Draft), including the injured Cade Cunningham (the first of the 2021 generation), plus the leadership exercised by the Croatian Bojan Bogdanovic, who will continue unless he is transferred, in a group that has been in the East well for years four courses. Williams has proven success as head coach: In 2022, just one year ago, he was voted Coach of the Year.
