“That’s the appeal of scouting internationally, that it’s all about team and winning,” New Orleans General Manager Trajan Langdon said. “There are really no individualistic things that go on in Europe. When there is credit due, it’s to people who have won. A lot of times when people look at stat sheets and see a guy averaged nine points and three rebounds, (they say) why is he is the MVP of a game or a league? It’s because it’s not only about the stats; it’s what he brings to his team, whether it’s the defensive side of the floor, passing, screening. A guy like Nicolo, you can look at his stat line and be like, ‘I don’t understand the intrigue from the NBA for the last three years.’ But it’s what he brings – he’s a team-first guy, a winner. He’s highly motivated and a competitor. Those are the kind of people we want here, to be a part of the Pelicans organization. He’s another guy who’s going to make people better, on and off the court.”
Earlier this spring, Forde was also the search-firm consultant for the Pelicans, who ended up hiring David Griffin in April to run their front office. Two of the other finalists in New Orleans were Langdon and Harris. Both interviewed. The Pels loved Langdon, according to sources at the time, and those sources must’ve known what they were talking about since the Pels eventually hired him as Griffin’s No. 2. Harris also apparently impressed during his interview. Forde was there guiding the Pels through all of it. And so comes a logical follow-up question: Why were Langdon and Harris viable candidates for the actual job in New Orleans but not ones for interviews in Washington? The Wizards haven’t hit up either for interviews, according to sources. Maybe they didn’t like the fit. Maybe Leonsis wasn’t as impressed, for whatever reason.

Long Island Nets General Manager Trajan Langdon has been named the 2018-19 NBA G League Basketball Executive of the Year, as selected by his fellow NBA G League basketball executives. In his third season as general manager of the Brooklyn Nets’ NBA G League affiliate, Langdon oversaw a team that tied for the NBA G League’s best record (34-16), secured the No. 1 playoff seed in the Eastern Conference and earned the franchise’s first postseason berth.

The Pistons’ new front office, centered on Stefanski, will look closely at hiring a rising front-office executive in a general-manager-type role, league sources said.

In his first interview since being dumped as Nets GM in January, Billy King tells two NBA beat writers he thinks he could have turned things around if he had been permitted to stay on, but says he does not “begrudge” ownership for wanting a “different voice” in shaping the team. Still, he admits to “bitter fieelings” King also seems to side with those who criticized the Nets for not interviewing any candidates of color for his old job, noting that the trend now is to hire executives from the “Spurs tree,” an apparent reference to the Nets decision to hire Sean Marks and Trajan Langdon.

Langdon said playing in Europe allowed him to experience new cultures, especially during his six years in Moscow. Like most of us, all he knew were stereotypes of the city, but he learned to understand and enjoy Russian culture. “It’s 15 million people there, you can get anything you need there, the language is difficult, but in terms of getting what you want, it’s like New York,” he said. “The people there are harsh at the beginning. They are just not going to embrace you immediately, especially if you are new. “For me, with the players, it wasn’t about being a person of color at all, it was more about being an American than anything.”
