Lawrence Frank is being "strongly considered" for an assistant-coaching position with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to the Los Angeles Times' Broderick Turner. Frank was Jason Kidd's lead assistant with the Brooklyn Nets at the beginning of this past season, but was "reassigned" in December. The Clippers recently promoted assistant coach Kevin Eastman to the front office, and assistants Alvin Gentry and Tyronn Lue are candidates for head-coaching jobs and could leave.

Frank was the head coach of the Detroit Pistons for two years prior to going to Brooklyn. Before that, he spent a season alongside Doc Rivers with the Boston Celtics. These circumstances make a reunion seem likely, unless Frank would rather be paid by the Nets not to coach. He signed a six-year, $6 million contract last summer.
