Former Euroleague legend Trajan Langdon of Anchorage is considering coming back to basketball.

Just not as a player.

“I am missing basketball a bit,” the retired 36-year-old told the Russian newspaper RIA Novosti.

“But I don’t want to return as a player; maybe as a coach or manager. I still love it.”

Langdon, of East High fame, retired last season after leading CSKA Moscow to its sixth consecutive Russian League title.

He played 12 pro seasons, including three in the NBA with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

He won the Euroleague twice in six years with CSKA Moscow and was the 2008 Final Four MVP.

Without Langdon, the Russian team failed to win this year’s Euroleague title after losing 62-61 to Olympiacos of Greece.
