Longtime NBA coach Paul Westphal will join Lionel Hollins on the Brooklyn Nets bench as his most experienced assistant, according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports:
Nets are finalizing details to add former Suns, Sonics and Kings coach Paul Westphal to Lionel Hollins' staff, sources tell @CBSSports.

Westphal has been a head coach in ten separate seasons for the Phoenix Suns, Seattle Supersonics, and most recently the Sacramento Kings, with a lifetime record of 318-279 and 27-22 in the playoffs. His most successful season was his first, coaching the 1992-93 Suns to a 62-20 record and the NBA Finals.
That brings Hollins’s staff to Westphal, Joe Wolf, Tony Brown, and John Welch, with potentially Henry Bibby added to the list. Eric Hughes, Joe Prunty, and Sean Sweeney all joined Jason Kidd with the Milwaukee Bucks.
What does that mean for Lawrence Frank and Roy Rogers? Frank is hearing overtures from the Los Angeles Clippers, and Rogers is currently with the team in Summer League.
