In 1997, Carlesimo headed to the Golden State Warriors, coaching the team until 1999. He was fired in December of that year, after his team got off to a poor start for the third straight season.
Carlesimo was an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs under Gregg Popovich from 2002 to 2007. He agreed to coach the Seattle SuperSonics on July 5, 2007. The terms of the deal were undisclosed. Carlesimo was fired on November 22, 2008 by the Oklahoma City Thunder after a 112 win-loss start.
