08:07 AM ET 08.02 | When Lawrence Frank begins his new job in earnest, to whom will he report in Detroit? After much speculation, it certainly seems like it's going to be president of basketball operations Joe Dumars, like always, despite the presence of former Knicks president and Madison Square Garden executive Dave Checketts, who has been a consultant to new Pistons owner Tom Gores and his team during the sale of the Pistons from Karen Davidson, the widow of longtime owner Bill Davidson. Given Checketts' presence, and his open desire to get back into the NBA -- he currently owns the NHL's St. Louis Blues -- many have speculated that he could wind up in a leadership position in Detroit.
