Nets Coach Frank Fined $25,000

November 9, 2005

NEW YORK (AP) _ New Jersey Nets coach Lawrence Frank was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Wednesday for failing to leave the court in a timely matter after Monday’s loss at Miami.

Frank was also cited for verbal abuse of a game official by Stu Jackson, the NBA’s senior vice president of basketball operations.

Frank was upset that Jason Kidd was called for a foul with 5.2 seconds left, and Dwyane Wade made a free throw to give the Heat a 90-89 lead. Frank then thought Wade fouled Vince Carter at the buzzer, and ran halfway across the court to plead his case.
