"We believe in the D-League, we think it’s a great resource, but we haven’t really discussed it in terms of (Kravtsov)," Frank said. "I think what you do is you try to look at your schedule, look at the D-League schedule, and try to match it, so it would be premature to comment on that."
The Fort Wayne Mad Ants, Detroit’s D-League affiliate, don’t begin their season for another week. Still, I don’t expect Viacheslav Kravtsov will get sent down any time soon, if at all. The Pistons have typically preferred their young players work with NBA coaches, and I don’t think the 25-year-old Kravtsov will be an exception. He has playing experience. He needs NBA experience.
