Langdon named G League’s top exec; interviews for Pelicans GM

March 31, 2019

From the backcourt to the front office, Trajan Langdon of Anchorage continues to make all the right moves on the basketball court.

Except rather than pulling up for jumpers like he used to do, the former NBA player is pulling the strings of the NBA G League’s Long Island Nets.

The 42-year-old general manager put together a squad that clinched the Atlantic Division and had the best record in the Eastern Conference at 34-16.

He was rewarded with the G League Executive of the Year award.

Langdon, of East High fame, has been with the Nets organization since 2016.

He’s in his third season as Long Island Nets general manager and doubles as the Brooklyn Nets assistant general manager.

Langdon – a member of the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame – has also worked for both the Spurs and Cavaliers before the Nets.

He might be on the move to another NBA organization soon.

Langdon is on the short list of candidates to replace Dell Demps as general manager of the New Orleans Pelicans, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
