Rumor: Lawrence Frank Candidate for Tennessee

New, comments

Twitter / @Adrian Wojnarowski:

As @AlexKennedyNBA reports, Lawrence Frank candidate for Tennessee. He's turned back Big East overtures in past year, but UT's different.

Frank has history in Knoxville as an assistant, and league sources say it's perhaps only college job that would intrigue him to leave NBA.

With NCAA sanctions likely, UT would likely have to offer long contract and allow Frank to finish Celtics season. No way he bails on Boston.

Interesting if true. Doc is developing quite a coaching tree of his own.
