AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Lawrence Frank has been fired by the Detroit Pistons after he became the latest coach unable to revive the struggling franchise's fortunes.

The team announced the move Thursday, a day after the Pistons lost at Brooklyn to finish the season 29-53.

Frank went 54-94 in two seasons with Detroit. He took over before the lockout-shortened 2011-12 campaign, and the rebuilding Pistons have been slow to improve despite drafting in the lottery the last three years.

This is a big offseason for the Pistons, who traded veterans Ben Gordon and Tayshaun Prince in the last year and have a decent amount of space under the salary cap.
