Prokhorov, Marks reach into past for newest Nets exec
Brooklyn hired Trajan Langdon as an assistant general manager Tuesday, adding someone who worked with new GM Sean Marks and for Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov.
“We are very pleased to welcome Trajan and his family to the Brooklyn Nets. Trajan is someone I worked with closely at the Spurs, and he brings a unique combination of NBA and European experience to the position,” said GM Sean Marks said in a statement.
“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 had been Cleveland’s director of player administration and basketball operations since last September. He worked with the general manager and was responsible for pro player personnel reporting for opponents, college and D-League scouting. But not shockingly he started his front office career in San Antonio, as did Marks.
Langdon was a pro scout for the Spurs from 2012-15, and was a member of the team’s front office during the 2013-14 season when they won an NBA title.
A former first-round pick for Cleveland out of Duke in 1999, Langdon played three seasons with the Cavaliers. A native of Anchorage – where he was actually a school lab partner of eventual musical star Jewel – he became the first Alaskan to play in the NBA. But he had his greatest success abroad for Prokhorov’s CSKA Moscow team: He was a two-time Euroleague champion (2006, 2008), Euroleague Final Four MVP (2008) and two-time All-Euroleague First Team pick.
