In the world of professional sports, when a team struggles, the first person who gets blamed is usually the head coach. The NBA is certainly no different, and we’ve already seen Philadelphia 76ers head coach Doug Collins and Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott get their walking papers on Thursday. Next up is the Detroit Pistons’ Lawrence Frank, who was given just two seasons to turn one of the league’s worst teams into something better and failed to do so.
“We thank Lawrence for his hard work and dedication, but we feel it is in the best interest of the franchise to make a change at this time,” said Pistons general manager Joe Dumars in a statement. “Decisions like this are never easy and we wish Lawrence well in the future.”
