Lawrence Frank interviews with Pistons

Unless you're Phil Jackson, you rarely walk into ready-made winning teams as a new head coach.  You're usually walking into one hell of a mess because, obviously, the mess is what got the last guy fired.

Well, the Detroit Pistons are one hell of a mess.  But Frank wants to be a head coach, so he went in for an interview.

Boston Celtics assistant coach Lawrence Frank interviewed Wednesday for the Detroit Pistons' coaching vacancy, according to NBA coaching sources.

Frank, formerly coach of the New Jersey Nets, is the second candidate to be formally interviewed for the position, sources said, joining former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Woodson.

The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press reported in Thursday's editions that the Pistons also have scheduled an interview with Milwaukee Bucks assistant Kelvin Sampson by week's end.

Frank is still up for the Raptors job, which is a little bit more attractive.  I still say he goes to there if he can.  Plus Toronto would be smart to pilfer a coach from a rival.  Well, a team in the same division.  Rival is putting it a little strongly.
