new jersey dismisses frank after nets drop season's first 16 games

new jersey dismisses frank after nets drop season's first 16 games EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. | The New Jersey Nets fired coach Lawrence Frank after losing their first 16 games during one of the worst starts in NBA history.

Assistant Tom Barrise coached the team Sunday night in Los Angeles against the Lakers. Another loss by the Nets would tie the record for the worst start if they lose.

The Nets said a permanent replacement for Frank has not been determined.

Frank, in his sixth full season, was the longest-tenured coach in the Eastern Conference and the winningest coach in the Nets' NBA history.
