Lawrence Frank Rumors
Officially, Lopez has played for Nets coaches Lawrence Frank, Avery Johnson, Lionel Hollins and Kidd, as well as interim coaches Tom Barrise, Kiki Vandeweghe, P.J. Carlesimo and Tony Brown. Asked recently to go through his mental Rolodex of coaches, Lopez struggled. “L-Frank,” he began, attempting to name them sequentially. “T.B., Kiki, Avery, J-Kidd… No?”
One course of action the Clippers appear interested in trying to sell is the idea of a “Big Four” with Durant joining point guard Chris Paul, forward Blake Griffin and center DeAndre Jordan, fitting Durant’s salary under the salary cap. According to a league source, the Clippers are prepared to send Ballmer, Coach Doc Rivers, new executive vice president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank and General Manager Dave Wohl to Friday’s meeting. Paul, Griffin and Jordan could also end up attending, putting the “Big Four” pitch in three dimensions.
