Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov did not limit his free spending to big-name players in his attempt to support rookie head coach Jason Kidd.
Lawrence Frank, Kidd’s lead assistant in Brooklyn, was given a four-year deal worth more than $1 million a season — a deal that makes him the highest-paid assistant in the NBA — a league source told ESPNNewYork.com.
Mike Malone, new head coach of Sacramento, was the league’s top-paid assistant last season while making $750,000 with Golden State. A second league source said Frank’s deal with Brooklyn “could be the biggest in league history for an assistant.”
