    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Jul 3, 2013
    Kidd will coach his first game on Sunday, when the Nets open their Summer League schedule against the Detroit Pistons in Orlando. Normally head coaches don't coach in the Summer League, but Kidd is in his first year and needs the experience. Kidd leaned a lot on his lead assistant and former coach, Lawrence Frank. "It's been great. 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 "Someone brought up it could be sort of a 'summer school' type situation where I'm learning from [some] of the best, so right now it's observing and giving input and understanding and getting comfortable with the coaching aspect of it."
