AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Nearly two months after Lawrence Frank was fired, the NBA's Detroit Pistons introduced their new coach -- Maurice Cheeks.
Cheeks becomes the franchise's fourth coach in six seasons -- following Frank, John Kuester and Michael Curry. He is the ninth since the 1999-2000 season.
He inherits a team with solid young players in Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond. But the Pistons went 54-94 in two seasons under Frank and attendance dropped with the team struggling.
This is the third head coaching stop for Cheeks. He had a 284-286 record with the Portland Trail Blazers and Philadelphia 76ers.
