As an assistant coach: “Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders hired Randy Wittman and Sam Cassell to join him as assistants next season, the team announced Thursday. ‘Randy and Sam will be excellent additions to our coaching staff, and both will be instrumental in helping us achieve our goals,’ Saunders said in a release. ‘Randy brings a wealth of experience as a former head coach of two different teams and is very familiar with my system. I always regarded Sam as a coach on the floor during his playing days, and he brings instant credibility as a three-time NBA champion and a proven winner.’”
