The New Orleans Pelicans have fortified their front office with the hiring of Trajan Langdon as general manager. The team announced the addition in a press release.
Langdon previously worked as the assistant general manager for the Brooklyn Nets from 2016 to 2019 and as a director of basketball operations for the Cleveland Cavaliers prior to that.
This won’t be Langdon’s first time reporting to Pelicans vice president of basketball operation David Griffin, the pair won a championship during their stints with the Cavs.
Langdon will join Griffin in New Orleans with a busy summer ahead of them. After winning the 2019 NBA Draft Lottery, the team will explore the possibility of playing consensus top-pick Zion Williamson alongside incumbent superstar Anthony Davis, or honoring the latter’s trade request.
