The New Jersey Nets have fired coach Lawrence Frank after losing their first 16 games during one of the worst starts in NBA history.

     Assistant Tom Barrise will coach the team Sunday night in Los Angeles against the Lakers, when the Nets could tie the record for the worst start if they lose.
    
The Nets say a permanent replacement for Frank has not been determined.
    
Frank was in his sixth full season, the longest-tenured coach in the Eastern Conference and the winningest coach in the Nets' NBA history. But none of those victories came this season, and the team dismissed him with a 225-241 record.
