Posted April 06, 2013 on AP on Fox
Detroit Pistons coach Lawrence Frank says he knows his future with the team is up in the air after a second straight tough season. The Pistons started the day with a 25-51 record, good for 12th in the Eastern Conference. Frank says rumors about job security ''come with the territory.'' He is in his second season with the Pistons and went 25-41 last year. With a promising young frontcourt including Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond and loads of cap space this summer, the Pistons could look to make big changes both on the court and with the coaching staff. Frank is in his ninth season as a head coach in the league. He says he's learned in that time to focus on the things he can control.
