Pistons interviewed Lawrence Frank (and maybe Mike Woodson), set to interview Kelvin Sampson


Marc Stein of ESPN:

"Boston Celtics assistant coach Lawrence Frank interviewed Wednesday for the Detroit Pistons’ coaching vacancy, according to NBA coaching sources.Frank, formerly coach of the New Jersey Nets, is the second candidate to be formally interviewed for the position, sources said, joining former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Woodson."

Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News sort of contradicts that second paragraph:

"ESPN.com reported Frank and former Hawks coach Mike Woodson have been interviewed by the Pistons, but a source with knowledge of the situation said Woodson has not made his way to Auburn Hills yet."

I don’t know whether Goodwill is saying the Pistons haven’t interviewed Frank, whether he’s just trying to write cutely or both. Obviously, the Pistons could have interviewed Woodson outside of Auburn Hills. The difference probably doesn’t matter. The Pistons will surely interview Woodson at some point, if they haven’t already.

The Pistons will also interview Kelvin Sampson this week, according to Goodwill and Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.



"Again, #Pistons have not interviewed Mike Woodson. Not off-site. Not anywhere. He will be interviewed very soon."
