(NEW YORK) — Newly hired Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd is currently holding interviews for his coaching staff.
Kidd said that he has already interviewed former Nets coach Lawrence Frank and Roy Rogers for assistant coaching positions.
“I’ve always respected Coach Frank,” Kidd said on Wednesday. “He’s the reason I’ve kind of publicly recruited him, because I really need him and want him. I guess I’m kind of that college recruiter right now, because he brings a lot to the table.”
“He’s had success here, understands the good and bad and, so again, I’m recruiting him to come join my staff,” Kidd continued.
Kidd will be the coach of the Nets’ summer league team in July and also said that he is scheduling more interviews for the vacant assistant job.
