Lawrence Frank Officially Hired By Pistons
The Detroit Pistons have reached agreement with Lawrence Frank on a four-year contract to become their head coach, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
The fourth season of Frank’s contract is a team option that could become fully guaranteed based on incentives. Frank is expected to sign the contract early next week in Auburn Hills, Mich., where the team plans an introductory news conference.
Yahoo! Sports reported that Frank had been offered the Pistons job last week.
Frank has a clear understanding of the rebuilding process ahead of the Pistons, with the franchising shifting toward revamping its roster around the past two top draft picks, Greg Monroe and Brandon Knight. Pistons president Joe Dumars and Frank have discussed extensively the charting of a course to reshape Detroit into a contender again.
