ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- New Orlando Magic coach Jacque Vaughn has completed his staff, with the addition of six new assistants.

Vaughn and general manager Rob Hennigan announced Thursday that the team hired James Borrego, Wes Unseld, Jr. and Brett Gunning to serve as Vaughn's main assistants. Laron Profit and Luke Stuckey will lead player development, and Gordon Chiesa was hired as a special consultant to Vaughn.

Borrego spent the past two seasons as an assistant in New Orleans. Unseld was a Golden State assistant last season after a stint as a Washington assistant. Gunning served several roles with Houston the past four years.

Profit played four seasons in the NBA and Stuckey coached high school basketball in California the last four years.

The Magic open training camp on Oct. 1.
