Frank Lands in Boston

The Nets wanted Tom Thibodeau to replace Lawrence Frank on the sidelines but are happy to have Avery Johnson running their show.  Lawrence Frank wanted a head coaching job but is happy to be replacing Tom Thibodeau in Boston, being named a Celtic assistant coach Thursday.

“I think it’s a good situation for me – I wanted to get back and coach, and I didn’t want to sit and wait, and you can’t ask for a better situation or a better organization,” Frank said.

Frank was fired by the Nets after an injury-riddled 0-16 start in New Jersey last season, being replaced by Kiki Vandeweghe.  Vandeweghe is also in the hunt for a new job, being one of the finalists to replace Kevin Pritchard in Portland.
