    Media Mike Wants Frank Inside His Tight Circle

    Whatever happens in Detroit could trigger Mike D'Antoni's activity in searching for a defensive assistant coach.

    All eyes will be on what happens with the Pistons head coaching position, as the finalists appear to be Mike Woodson and Lawrence Frank.

    From what we've been hearing, D'Antoni personally likes Frank and there is a strong mutual interest there for many reasons.

    First of all, whomever the Knicks hire would have to accept a one-year deal because D'Antoni is going into the final year of his contract and there is some uncertainty about his future. Frank, unlike most, would likely be amenable to accepting a one-year contract because it gives him the freedom to continue to look for head coaching jobs.

    Frank might also prefer New York over returning to Boston for proximity reasons, as well, because he could be home full-time in New Jersey, where his wife and two daughters remained last season when he worked for the Celtics.

    But Frank reportedly had a strong interview that impressed the Pistons' hierarchy, so there is a good chance he could get that job. What does that mean for D'Antoni's search for a defensive assistant?




    I want you!

    Whether or not there's any legitimacy behind this, it's a move that I'd be happy with.

    they should get Frank as defensive assistant now, not resign D-Antoni after his contract is up and promote Frank to head coach afterwards.

    Haha. There's a bit of subliminally perverted humour in StEpHoN_mArBuRy's post as well.

    I really hope we can hire Lawrence Frank, he's the best defensive assistant coach available.

    I'd say Tom Thibs. He was around when we played great D in the late 90's early 2K's and the Bulls played good D with him as HC.

    I'd rank Thibs higher than Frank in terms of defensive competency.
