“What this team needs, it’s simple – discipline, development and defense,” said the Pistons general manager, minutes after praising the impact Dwane Casey had on the young players central to Weaver’s restoration project, as he embarks on the mission to replace Casey. “That’s going to be the call for the next coach. That’s our marching orders and we’re excited about moving forward.”

Bottom Line: Weaver has to get this hire right

Weaver has an extremely important decision to make as he considers candidates to replace Dwane Casey as the Pistons' next head coach. With Cade Cunningham returning from injury, along with a probable Top 3 pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, the expectation is that the Pistons take a huge step forward during the 2023-24 season.
