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.”
