NBA: Detroit Pistons at Brooklyn Nets

Brooklyn Nets rookie head coach Jason Kidd needed some assistant coaches with NBA experience and the ability to help wade Kidd through what should be a rough rookie coaching campaign.

Kidd reached out to a familiar face, and it didn’t come cheap. ¬†ESPN New York is reporting that Lawrence Frank will return to the Nets, this time as an assistant coach, helping his former star point guard.

Frank will reportedly earn $1 million a season, over a four-year deal. That deal will make Frank the highest-paid assistant in the NBA.

Frank was recently fired after two failed seasons in Detroit, but Kidd thought the hire was a no brainer.

“He’s a guy I can lean on, ask him any question, he pretty much has all the answers,” Kidd said Wednesday at the Nets’ summer team practice. “I’m happy he’s on board. He’s been a head coach in this league, he’s been an assistant, so he understands what it takes to be successful. I’m very lucky to have a special guy like that.”
