Lawrence Frank Takes Over In Detroit

Sources: Pistons tab Lawrence Frank | Marc Stein | ESPN.com

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.
