Lawrence Frank Hiring Attorney After Jason Kidd Banished Him From Sidelines

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Brooklyn Nets

You had to know this was coming after Kidd basically put Frank in timeout.

Nets assistant coach Lawrence Frank is in the process of retaining “high-powered” legal counsel, presumably to settle a buyout with the franchise in the wake of being “re-assigned” by head coach Jason Kidd, a league source told The Post.

Kidd hasn’t back down either, he continues to point out that Frank isn’t needed anymore.

“I think [Frank] is still working, so there’s no disappointment,” Kidd said after Wednesday’s practice. “So we move on.”

“It’s part of the job. He’s working. He’s giving his reports … so do I miss him? No. He’s doing his job and what I’ve asked him to do.”
