Lawrence Frank Takes Over In Detroit

Sources: Pistons tab Lawrence Frank | Marc Stein |

The Detroit Pistons have chosen Lawrence Frank to be their new head coach, according to sources with knowledge of the team's thinking.

... Frank has apparently convinced the Pistons that a season working under Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers enhanced his ability to relate to players, which is a priority in Detroit after two seasons filled with locker-room tension during [John] Kuester's reign and similar strained player-coach relations during the brief stint of Kuester predecessor Michael Curry.

Good luck to Frank, and bring on the new assistant coach.
