Duke Basketball: Trajan Langdon hired as GM of New Orleans Pelicans

The team with the No. 1 overall pick looked in a similar direction to fill its hole at General Manager.

David Griffin, the Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations for the New Orleans Pelicans, hired Trajan Langdon as his General Manager on Saturday afternoon.

The team also won the NBA Draft lottery last week and all signs point to the Pelicans selecting the superstar out of Duke, Zion Williamson.

Langdon played at Duke from 1994 through 1999 and was the No. 11 overall pick in the 1999 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
