Tayshaun Prince and Lawrence Frank communicate … productively(!)

Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News:

There was an interesting moment in the third quarter of Wednesday’s game.

Frank and Tayshaun Prince were engaged in a lively discussion during a stoppage.

Let’s just say it was far different than Prince’s exchange with former coach John Kuester in Golden State last season, one that developed into a heated confrontation on the floor.

"Tay has a very high basketball IQ," Frank said. "You want to know what they’re seeing on the floor. To be able to engage those guys and activate that knowledge is vital."

To a degree, I think Tayshaun Prince was willing to give a chance to any coach not named John Kuester, whom he might have never respected. If Lawrence Frank can keep Prince engaged and bought in, that would help both in the long run.
