Monty Williams Secures Largest Contract In NBA History

The Pistons have hired former Phoenix Suns coach Monty Williams as their new head coach, which places him as the highest-paid head coach in NBA history.

Williams agreed to a six-year, $72 million dollar deal that could turn into an eight-year, $100 million dollars. He could as much as $100 million due to incentives.

Detroit wanted him and aggressively pursued him as they were trying to change his mind about taking this season off. While they had an interest in Charles Lee and others, they clearly desired Monty Williams.

The main reason why the Pistons hired Monty Williams was to bring their team back from the abyss and into the light of success. As he did for Phoenix, Detroit hopes he can recreate that success and take them to the playoffs for the first time since 2019.
