Frank fired as Nets coach, Vandeweghe the interim

Ken Berger of CBS Sports reports that the Nets will fire coach Lawrence Frank this week after the team's 0-16 start. General manager Kiki Vandeweghe put Frank on the hot seat, but didn't fire him earlier because there was indecision as to who would be the interim coach, and they wanted to wait for key players to return from injury such as Devin Harris and Courtney Lee.

Vandeweghe will be the interim coach even though he has no head coaching experience. The loss of Vince Carter, key injuries, a league-worst offensive rating (92.8 points per 100 possessions, with 92.8 possessions per game) and a crumbling locker room prompted a so-far winless season.
