The production of light-mass ion in nucleon induced reactions was lacking in the intranuclear cascade (INC) model of the nuclear reaction code BRIEFF. Deuteron candidates can now be created all along the evolution of the INC stage of reaction according a quasi-free coalescence process inside the nuclear+Coulomb field of the target nucleus. This process is partly based on the opposite process of the deuteron breakup already implemented. The emission of a deuteron candidate is the result of the competition between the deuteron formation and the deuteron breakup. This development of our INC model allows to calculate the production of deuteron in the full range of outgoing energy in nucleon induced reactions but also in deuteron induced reactions. Preliminary results of deuteron production in continuum in proton (p,xd) and deuteron (d,xd) induced reactions are presented and discussed.
