Magic Hire Unseld, Profit, Stuckey As Assistants

AUGUST 30TH, 11:53am: The Magic have hired Laron Profit and Luke Stuckey as assistants, filling out the team's coaching staff, tweets Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel. Profit and Stuckey join Unseld Jr., James Borrego, and Brett Gunning on head coach Jacque Vaughn's staff.

AUGUST 24TH, 5:25pm: Wes Unseld Jr., son of Hall of Fame player Wes Unseld, will move from the Warriors to the Magic, where he'll assume an assistant coach position on Jacque Vaughn's new staff, reports Unseld spent last season in Golden State, and the previous 13 on the Wizards bench. 

Warriors GM Bob Myers indicated that the team would replace Unseld Jr. by either promoting someone from within the organization, or hiring a new name from the outside. Earlier this week, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel tweeted that Unseld Jr. was a candidate for an assistant coaching position on the Magic staff.
