Kidd Wants Lawrence Frank On Staff

Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd has offered Lawrence Frank the opportunity to be an assistant coach on his staff. [1]

“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.
