Dwane Casey rumors

Did you ever get a sense during the pre-draft process that the Pistons would take you if available at No. 5? Jaden Ivey: Yeah. After my workout with the Pistons, I really liked the organization. Dwane Casey, what we were talking about. Troy Weaver. I felt comfortable with the organization and coaching staff. They were very genuine. The facility I was at, it was a very nice facility. I can’t wait to get to work there.
Last year, as Congress debated the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, Cadogan brought together coalition board members Steve Ballmer (owner of the LA Clippers) and Karl-Anthony Towns (star player of the Minnesota Timberwolves), with bill sponsors Rep. Karen Bass (D-California) and Sen. Tim Scott (R-South Carolina) for a discussion. In March, Cadogan was joined by Dwane Casey, Pistons coach and coalition board member, to lobby the White House in support of criminal sentencing legislation. “The tools of 2020 are not the tools of 2022,” Cadogan said. “The reason that we established a coalition is to take on this work on behalf of the NBA community, so it will look different over time. And it should look different over time. What we saw in the bubble, which I think will go down as a critical, pivotal moment, in not just sports history, but American history … there was a need and a moment and the right opportunity for players to stand up in a new way. “Now, the outgrowth, the real question, I think this is true of anybody who cares about this work is, how do you do it sustainably? And how do you keep it going beyond the moments of protest?”
