Brooklyn Nets decided to hire Jason Kidd, who retired just a couple of weeks ago, as the team’s new head coach, and he has already began the search for assistants. One assistant that Kidd has in mind is Lawrence Frank.
According to Nets Daily, Kidd hopes that Frank will be interested in the job:
In an interview with Greg Kelly and Rosanna Scotto on Good Day New York Monday, Jason Kidd touched on a number of the same issues he talked about at last week’s press conference, including his recruitment of Lawrence Frank as his lead assistant.
“I’m working as hard as I can,” said Kidd. “So, hopefully he does joint the staff because he would be great.”
Frank is already familiar with the organization, as he was the head coach of the New Jersey Nets. He took the Nets to the Eastern Conference Semifinals three times during his tenure. What is perhaps a little ironic is the fact that Frank actually coached Kidd when he was still an active player with the Nets.
Frank is coming off a disappointing season with the Detroit Pistons after which he was relieved of his duties
