Pistons’ Coach Frank On His Way Out?
It’s been a trying season for Lawrence Frank, both on and off the court.
He missed six games to help his wife through an illness and the young Pistons have had trouble getting any traction in his second season on the sideline.
Frank knows that when another disappointing season in Detroit comes to a close, general manager Joe Dumars will have a decision to make on Frank’s job.
Rumors have already started to swirl about Frank’s future, and he understands. The Pistons entered the game against Minnesota on Saturday night with a 25-51 record, good for 12th in the Eastern Conference. Sure, the Pistons are rebuilding. But Frank knows what can happen to coaches in a rebuilding process.
“When you have a record like we have, it comes with the territory,” Frank said before the game. “That’s the nature of this business. It’s results oriented.”
