Source: Kiki Vandeweghe to Coach Nets Rest of Season

A person with knowledge of their plans says New Jersey Nets general manager Kiki Vandeweghe will coach the team for the rest of the season.

Vandeweghe won't coach his first game with the team until Friday, the person told The Associated Press. The person requested anonymity because the Nets don't plan to announce their plans until Tuesday.

Tom Barrise, who led the team Sunday night after Lawrence Frank was fired, will coach again Wednesday against Dallas, when the Nets can set an NBA record with an 18th straight loss to begin a season.

Former NBA head coach Del Harris will join the Nets as Vandeweghe's assistant.
