Kidd wants Frank on coaching staff

By Mike Mazzeo

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 in March for an undisclosed illness, and Frank said then that she faces a long recovery.
