Report: C's Frank finalist for Detroit, Toronto jobs

Lawrence Frank may have been passed over by the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors, but he's still got two more chances with the Detroit Pistons and the Toronto Raptors.

ESPN's Marc Stein reports that according to NBA coaching sources, Frank met with the Pistons for the coaching vacancy on Wednesday, and he's already a finalist in Toronto.

Frank was the Celtics' assistant coach for the 2010-11 season, a year after former Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau was hired by the Bulls as Head Coach, winning this season's Coach of the Year honors.

Frank's head coaching career record is 225-241 with the New Jersey Nets.

According to Stein, Frank is in the running for the Pistons position with former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Woodson, while the Detroit Free Press reported that Milwaukee Bucks assistant Kelvin Sampson is to be interviewed as well. Mavericks assistant Dwane Casey also looks to get an interview with the Pistons.
