Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd has offered Lawrence Frank the opportunity to be an assistant coach on his staff.

“The invitation is out there, so it’s up to him,” Kidd said Friday on ESPN Radio’s “Mike & Mike”.

“He’s in a special situation. He’s at home, his wife is sick, so I understand coming off of coaching [the Detroit Pistons] and [possibly] wanting a year off with his family, so I respect that. The big thing is he knows how much I love him and how much I need him, but family comes first, and I respect that.”

Frank lives in New Jersey. His wife underwent emergency surgery this past offseason for an undisclosed illness, and Frank has said she faces a long recovery.

Kidd says he’s currently in the recruiting process of trying to put together his staff.
