AP Source: Brown, Rogers set to join Detroit staff

The Detroit Pistons have agreed to terms with former NBA players
Dee Brown and Roy Rogers to become assistants on the staff of new
head coach Lawrence Frank.

A person with knowledge of the situation, speaking on condition
of anonymity because the team has not made an announcement, says
Brown and Rogers have agreed to deals. Of course, it’s not clear
when they’ll have a chance to help Frank coach a game because of
the lockout.

Brown, who played 12 years in the NBA with Boston, Toronto and
Orlando, has coached the Springfield Armor of the NBA Development
League. Rogers played 137 NBA games from 1996-2000 with Vancouver,
Boston, Toronto and Denver. He worked for Frank as an assistant
when Frank was coach of the New Jersey Nets.
