Lawrence Frank is not a bad coach, but he keeps landing in very bad situations.
He was the head coach of the New Jersey Nets in 2010 before being fired after an 0-16 start. That team went on to have a 12-70 record, clearly indicating their problems did not start with the coach.
Frank will unfortunately be put in a similar predicament in Detroit. The Pistons are struggling to become relevant again and they finally have some nice pieces.
Greg Monroe is developing into one of the top centers in the league, and Brandon Knight displayed some solid potential last season.
With Andre Drummond coming in, Piston fans could be expecting a drastic improvement, but they won't get it. The roster is young and raw, but that won't save Frank's job, and I expect him to take the heat for a poor start.
This will eventually result in him getting fired, and, just like before, the final record will show that the struggles were not Frank's fault.
