Williams will sign a six-year, $72 million deal with Detroit that could reach up to eight years and $100 million with incentives, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania and James Edwards. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski notes that Williams’ deal is the largest for a head coach in NBA history. In recent days, rumors began to circulate that the Pistons were prepared to offer Williams a deal in the range of $10 million per year, and this annual value significantly exceeds that. Williams now becomes one of the league’s highest-paid coaches, and he is still owed over $20 million over the next three years from the Phoenix Suns, who parted ways with Williams after four seasons earlier this month.
