WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Washington Wizards hired former NBA player and coach Jerry Sichting as an assistant coach Thursday.

The 55-year-old Sichting played 10 seasons for five teams in the NBA and worked as an assistant coach for Minnesota and Golden State. With the Timberwolves for 11 seasons, Sichting worked under Wizards head coach Randy Wittman for two campaigns when Wittman held the same role in Minnesota.

After his stint with the Warriors during the 2010-11 season, Sichting stepped in and served as the head coach for Martinsville (Ind.) High School, his alma mater.

In July, the Wizards also hired former San Antonio Spurs assistant Don Newman.
