According to reports, the Pistons have decided to hire ex-New Jersey Nets head coach Lawrence Frank. He has beat out candidates Mike Woodson, Bill Laimbeer, Kelvin Sampson and Patrick Ewing.

Frank coached the Nets for parts of seven seasons before joining the Boston Celtics' staff as an assistant last season. It remains to be seen who will serve as assistants to Frank in Detroit, but Laimbeer could be considered for such a position after serving that role the past two years with the Minnesota Timberwolves, who coincidentally are the only team currently looking for a new head coach.
