Dwane Casey praises DeMar DeRozan: He is like a son. I love the young man

The Pistons head coach had nice words for his former player in Toronto

Coach Dwane Casey praised DeMar DeRozan.
Casey was fired by the Raptors at the end of the season and has been hired by the Pistons.
DeRozan was traded to the Spurs.

Per Pounding The Rock, Former Raptors and current Pistons head coach Dwane Casey appeared on SiriusXM NBA Radio on Thursday afternoon and had nothing but good things to say about his former star DeMar DeRozan to hosts Brian Geltzeiler and David Griffin. “DeMar DeRozan is like a son. I love the young man . . . The first person I met when I walked into Toronto, into the press conference was DeMar DeRozan. He was there, coat and tie suit, his second year in the league, young kid: ‘Coach I’m here, I’m yours’ . . . “I look at him and he’s a big part of what I look back on in Toronto, watching that young man grow, watching him become a 3, 4-time All-Star, All-Pro in his career. When I first got there, when he ran a pick-and-roll he’d throw that joker three rows up in the stands. The last two, three years he was our best pick-and-roll player. We put him in pick-and-rolls just as much as Kyle (Lowry), running the show because of the size, passing ability and that type of thing.”
