The Brooklyn Nets are “pretty close” to hiring Roy Rogers as an assistant coach on Jason Kidd’s staff, a league source confirmed Saturday.

The team is still awaiting a decision from Lawrence Frank on the other assistant coaching spot. The Nets interviewed both Rogers and Frank on Tuesday, Kidd said earlier this week.

Rogers was an assistant under Frank for two seasons with the New Jersey Nets. Most recently, Rogers served as an assistant to Frank with the Detroit Pistons.
