Former Duke point guard Trajan Langdon is making a big mark in the NBA these days. Langdon was drafted in the first round of the NBA draft in 1999 by the Cleveland Cavaliers and played three seasons in the NBA before heading overseas to ball for nine years in Russia, Turkey, and Italy.
The Brooklyn Nets have tapped Langdon as their new assistant general manager. He has worked closely with Nets general manager Sean Marks previously and also with owner Mikhail 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.
Congrats to the former Blue Devil.
