DETROIT -- A person familiar with the situation says the Detroit Pistons will offer Lawrence Frank their coaching position within two days.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday night because the team isn't commenting on its search. The offer was first reported by Yahoo! Sports.
The Pistons fired John Kuester on June 5 after the team missed the playoffs each of his two seasons as coach.
Frank went 225-241 in 6 1/2 seasons as coach of the New Jersey Nets. He was fired by New Jersey in November 2009 after the team started that season 0-16. He was an assistant for the Boston Celtics last season.
