WASHINGTON (AP) -- New Washington Wizards coach Flip Saunders has chosen Randy Wittman and Sam Cassell to be on his staff.

Wittman and Cassell were announced Thursday as the replacements for Randy Ayers and Phil Hubbard, who were assistants under fired coach Eddie Jordan and interim coach Ed Tapscott.

Wittman was the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves for nearly two years before he was fired in December 2008. He was also head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers from 1999-2001 and has been an assistant with three other teams.

Cassell is taking his first coaching job after a 15-year NBA playing career. He won three titles -- two with Houston and one with Boston -- and played for Saunders on the Timberwolves team that went to the Western Conference finals in 2004.
