NEW YORK (AP) - Former Nets coach Lawrence Frank will return to the team as an assistant under new coach Jason Kidd.
The Nets said Friday they also agreed to terms with assistants Roy Rogers, Eric Hughes and holdover Doug Overton to fill out the staff of their rookie coach.
Frank is the Nets' career leader in victories, going 225-241 in parts of seven seasons, when Kidd was his point guard. He returns to the franchise after spending two seasons as the Detroit Pistons' coach, going 54-94.
Rogers worked under him in New Jersey and Detroit, while Hughes spent the last six seasons in Toronto. Overton will be entering his sixth season with the Nets, including fourth as an assistant coach.
The Nets hired Kidd shortly after he retired following a 19-year playing career.
