The Nets continued to remake their front office Tuesday, hiring Trajan Langdon as assistant general manager.
The former Duke star — who was drafted in the first round by the Cavaliers in 1999 and was the team’s director of player administration and basketball operations most recently — played three seasons in the NBA before embarking on a nine-year run overseas in Russia, Turkey and Italy.
Langdon has worked with Nets general manager Sean Marks and owner Mikhail Prokhorov before. He was a scout for the Spurs from 2012-15, and a part of the team’s front office during the 2013-14 title season.
One of his many playing stops was CSKA Moscow, which was then owned by Prokhorov.
“We are very pleased to welcome Trajan and his family to the Brooklyn Nets,” Marks said. “Trajan is someone I worked with closely at the Spurs, and he brings a unique combination of NBA and European experience to the position.
“Trajan’s recent front office post with Cleveland added to his professional resume, and I want to thank the Cavs for their cooperation in this effort. The Nets look forward to Trajan’s contributions.”
Langdon is also the first Alaskan to play in the NBA.
