Default Detroit never plays zone defense, says coach Frank

Michigan Live reports:

The Detroit Pistons never have used a zone defense this season and haven't even implemented one, head coach Lawrence Frank said Wednesday.
I think we showed it to our guys once but it was more to work against it, Frank said.
Frank said he would have implemented a zone if he had a normal-length preseason training camp and an 82-game season to do so.
But there were too many other issues to address to implement what amounts to a gimmick defense in the NBA, snuck in for a possession or two when the defense essentially has to hope for a perimeter miss after it's recognized.
