The Orlando Magic's new head coach, Denton Vaughn, announced his staff of assistant coaches yesterday, and among them is Laron Profit (1995-99), who will serve as a player development coach for the team. The Magic's press release:
The staff around new Orlando Magic head coach Jacque Vaughn started taking shape on Thursday when three assistants, two player development coaches and a special consultant were officially named by the team.

James Borrego, Wes Unseld Jr. and Brett Gunning were hired as assistant coaches under Vaughn, who was named head coach by the Magic on July 28. Luke Stuckey and former Magic draft pick Laron Profit have been named assistant coaches/player development coaches, while veteran NBA assistant coach Gordon Chiesa was tabbed as a special consultant to the head coach.

Profit, a second-round pick by the Magic in 1999, played in 135 regular-season games for the Wizards and Lakers while averaging 3.3 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists. He was traded to Washington prior to the 1999-2000 season and never played for the Magic.
