Joe Dumars announces firing of Lawrence Frank, and the source might matter

Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated:

GM Joe Dumars: "We thank Lawrence for his hard work and dedication, but we feel it is in the best interest of franchise to make a change."

These official releases rarely contain anything beyond boilerplate, but I think the fact this one comes from Joe Dumars matters. Dumars’ fate still hasn’t been publically announced by Tom Gores, but if Dumars is announcing Frank’s firing, I think that’s a strong sign Dumars will be retained. Otherwise, I’d guess the information would have been attributed to the organization rather than Dumars.
