HoopsHype Charles Klask rumors
It certainly has been a tumultuous opening two months of the season for the Nets, even beyond the disastrous 9-19 start for a team that had been tied with the Knicks for 11th place in the Eastern Conference. Last month, there was Kidd’s decision to reassign assistant coach Lawrence Frank. That came just weeks into the first year of six-year deal that was set to pay him a total of $6 million, after Kidd spent the first few days following his hiring this summer pushing Frank to join his staff. Kidd also confirmed to The Post he has had assistant coach Charles Klask — an assistant under Frank the last two seasons in Detroit — swap roles with advance scout Jim Sann, who was an assistant with the Nets under Frank during Kidd’s playing days with the franchise.

The Orlando Magic are about to lose a key member of their basketball operations staff. Charles Klask, the Magic’s scouting information manager, has accepted a job with the Detroit Pistons. “Charles was our statistics guru,” Magic General Manager Otis Smith told the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday. “He really delved into the numbers for us and broke down the numbers for us — a lot of breaking down the teams from a statistical regard, helping Stan formulate his game plans from a statistical perspective. He was huge to our staff.” Orlando Sentinel
