Sean Sweeney is leaving the Bucks to join Dwane Casey's new staff with the Pistons.

Sean Sweeney is leaving the Milwaukee Bucks to join the Detroit Pistons as a member of new head coach Dwane Casey’s staff, according to a report.

Aris Barkas of eurohoops.net reports Sweeney has a multiyear deal to become part of Casey’s staff in Detroit.

According to the Eurohoops report, Sweeney will be a “prominent” assistant on Casey’s staff.

Sweeney began his NBA career as assistant video coordinator with the Brooklyn Nets in December 2011. He joined the Bucks in 2014, arriving when Jason Kidd left the Nets to take over as head coach in Milwaukee.

He is well-regarded for his work in player development and was the Bucks’ coach closest to franchise player Giannis Antetokounmpo in recent seasons, also helping Thon Maker and other young Milwaukee players to advance their games.
