Per the Detroit Free Press:
The Detroit Pistons finally found a suitable candidate for their open head coaching position after over two months of looking.
Monty Williams, a former coach of the Phoenix Suns, is anticipated to agree to a deal with the Pistons worth more than $10 million yearly in the coming days, a league source told the Free Press on Wednesday. Williams, the NBA Coach of the Year in 2022, will receive one of the league’s highest salaries thanks to the incentive-rich contract.
According to ESPN, the contract is for six years and $78.5 million, making him the highest-paid NBA coach ever. According to The Athletic, there are incentives that may push the contract’s value to $100 million as well as team options for a seventh and eighth year.
