September 14, 2015

Trajan NBATrajan Langdon of Anchorage is headed back to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the same NBA organization that drafted him in 1999.

The 39-year-old has been hired as the team’s Director of Player Administration and will work directly under general manager David Griffin.

Langdon had worked as the Eastern Regional Pro Personnel Scout for the San Antonio Spurs since 2012.

He retired as a player in 2011 after three years in the NBA and nine years in the Euroleague, where he won eight league championships in Russia, Italy and Turkey and was selected to the Euroleague All-Decade Team.

Langdon, of East High fame, was the first Alaskan to play in the NBA after an All-American career at Duke University.

He is also an Alaska Sports Hall of Fame charter member.
