Adrian Wojnarowski: Lawrence Frank was Joe Dumars' first choice

Although Marc Stein reported Joe Dumars’ preference as new Pistons coach was Mike Woodson, Adrian Wojnarowski is refuting that:

From start of interview process, Frank was clearly Joe Dumars’ choice to replace John Kuester. Ownership agreed. No close second in process.

Woj and Stein both get their share of scoops, but hopefully, Wojnarowski’s sources are correct in this case. The last thing the Pistons needed was ownership to force a coach on Dumars. If both Dumars and ownership were in such unanimous agreement that Frank was the right man for the job, that is a very good sign that Frank will get the kind of institutional support he needs to assert himself in the locker room.
