Cheeks is Pistons' new coach, with work to do

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Nearly two months after Lawrence Frank was fired, the Detroit Pistons introduced their new coach - Maurice Cheeks. The search took a while because the Pistons have been mediocre for a few years and need this decision to work. 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.
