Prior to joining Golden State, Unseld spent 13 seasons with the Washington Wizards, including six seasons as an assistant coach from 2005-11.

He was promoted later that same year to advance scout. In addition to his nine-year tenure as advance pro scout for the Wizards, he also spent three seasons (1998-2000) as an advance scout for the WNBA’s Washington Mystics. In 1998, Unseld spent part of the season serving as an assistant coach for the Mystics.
A native of Maryland and the son of Hall of Famer Wes Unseld, Unseld Jr. played on the men’s basketball team at John Hopkins for three seasons. He and his wife, Evelyn, were married in July 2011.
