Hey, transaction news! Weird. Here’s the deal, from Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski:
Lawrence Frank has emerged as the choice to become the Detroit Pistons’ next head coach and a formal contract offer is expected within the next day, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Congrats, Frank n’ Beans. Brook Lopez might not know who you are, but we do. Way to go, man. Here’s hoping you actually get to coach your team someday.
And here’s hoping your team of overpaid veterans and mismatched youngsters actually plays for you, unlike when they turned on their previous coach, John Kuester. After two straight seasons that saw the Pistons win fewer than 40 percent of their games, the first such stretch since 1995, you’ve certainly got your work cut out for you. Maybe try that thing where you win your first 13 games again? I dunno, just a suggestion.
Oh, but definitely don’t do that thing where you lose 16 straight. Another suggestion, but this a really good one.
