It didn’t take long for Lawrence Frank to land on his feet. The former Pistons coach, who was fired the day after the completion of the regular season, has become an assistant coach for the New Jersey Nets and was given a four-year deal worth more than $1 million per season, according to an ESPN New York report. He will be the lead assistant to new Nets coach and legendary point guard Jason Kidd and the article, citing an unnamed league source, said the deal “could be the biggest in league history for an assistant.” Frank, 42, was fired after two seasons with the Pistons where he compiled a 54-94 record for the rebuilding organization. He coached Kidd in New Jersey and he joins former Pistons assistant Roy Rogers on the Nets’ bench.
