Boston Celtics Could Hire Lawrence Frank To Replace Doc Rivers?


It appears Lawrence Frank has become quite the desired coach. In addition to having a standing offer to join the Brooklyn Nets as an assistant, Frank also could become the head coach of the Boston Celtics – this assuming Doc Rivers is released from his contract.

As the Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers continue their attempts to knock out a trade which would allow Rivers to migrate to LA, Sherrod Blakely is hinting that Frank could become the man in Beantown.

Per Blakely:

In addition to Vinny Del Negro, former #Celtics asst. Lawrence Frank expected to emerge as candidate to replace Rivers as well.

Frank has spent the past two seasons as head coach of the Detroit Pistons, this after spending parts of seven seasons at the helm of the Nets franchise.

Owner of a career 279-335 record, Frank doesn’t carry the pedigree many other candidates do but significant playoff experience during his tenure with the Nets may separate him from the pack.

Frank was fired by the Pistons earlier this year after going 54-94 during his two seasons in Motown.
