Magic Bring in Lawrence Frank to Help Vince Carter

If Vince Carter was looking to get back to his old form, he only had to look to the bleachers during the Orlando Magic’s shootaround Tuesday for a reminder of those times.

Vince Carter has had the second-worst field-goal percentage in a month during the last 10 seasons.

Former New Jersey Nets coach Lawrence Frank was in attendance and will be observing practices this week, offering advice to the Magic staff. The biggest assistance might come with Carter, mired in a month-long shooting slump that ranks among the worst in the eight-time All-Star’s career.

Carter said he welcomes suggestions from his former coach after a "brutal" month.

"I knew he was coming," Carter said. "I’ve talked to him a few times. Happy to see him, even though he brought the rain."
