29. Wes Unseld Jr., Washington Wizards
The son of the Wizards Hall of Famer, Wes Unseld Jr. finally got his shot at a head coaching gig after working as an assistant for 16 years. Unseld could not have began his head coaching career at a more tumultuous time. In his first season, the Wizards dealt with more absences due to COVID-19 protocols than any team in the league. There was no telling which players were able to suit up on a nightly basis. The team’s lone All-NBA player from the prior season, Bradley Beal, was limited to just 40 games. Still, Unseld did a fine job in maximizing his talent amidst the circumstances.
