Rod Thorn endorsed Lawrence Frank after Tuesday's loss, saying the blame for the Nets' slow start lies elsewhere. "I think he's a terrific coach," Thorn said. "I think he does a great job. I don't think that's the problem." Thorn also said that the team has no plans to acquire anyone, at least until after they see what Josh Boone and Eddie House can do. One name that keeps coming up is the Bobcats' Melvin Ely. The 'Cats wanted a first round pick for him last year.
