Report: Detroit Pistons to hire Lawrence Frank as coach?

Lawrence Frank is Detroit’s choice to be its next head coach, and formal offer imminent within next 24-36 hours, league sources tell Y!

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The Detroit Pistons aren’t kind on coaches –but I suppose new sideline boss Lawrence Frank is aware of this.

Whether because of Executive Joe Dumars or the team’s temperamental players, the Pistons have chewed up and spit out seven coaches in eleven years. Many of those coaches left on bad terms; a few had awful experiences.

Frank knows this. He also knows what he has –or doesn’t have. The Pistons are a mediocre team, with several players who may resist his defense-first approach.

Still, Frank has one of the NBA’s thirty head coaching gigs.  After getting fired by the New Jersey Nets and spending time as an assistant with Doc Rivers’ Boston Celtics, Frank is back in ‘The Big Chair’.
