With the media speculating on Pistons coach Lawrence Frank’s future with the organization, one player offered some support this morning.

Greg Monroe, nearing the end of his third season, said after this morning’s shoot-around that Frank has “done a good job” and deserves to return.

“Yeah, I think he’s done a good job here,” Monroe said before tonight’s game against the Cavs. “There are a lot guys that have been in and out and new players here. I think once he gets a group of guys, a core that you know will be here, I think it’ll be easier for him.”

Monroe has spent the past two seasons with Frank. Monroe's rookie year was a tumultuous one for former Pistons coach John Kuester.

So you understand Monroe’s desire for a little continuity.

Frank, 42, is in the second-year of a four-year deal with the Pistons holding the option for the fourth season.

“I hear the speculation, but I’m preparing as if he’s going to be here,” Monroe said. “Until he says something or somebody from the organization says anything differently, I don’t have any reason to believe anything is being said right now.”
