We can add Nets assistant general manager Trajan Langdon to the list of candidates for the Timberwolves‘ president of basketball operations role, reports ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. According to Woj (via Twitter), Langdon is interviewing with Minnesota for the position.
The list of contenders for the Wolves’ top front office job continues to grow, as Langdon joins a group that also includes ESPN analyst Chauncey Billups, Clippers GM Michael Winger, Rockets executive VP of basketball operations Gersson Rosas, and Nuggets assistant GM Calvin Booth. As we noted earlier today, Minnesota is working to finalize interviews with all of those candidates.
Langdon, who has helped GM Sean Marks rebuild the Nets into a playoff team, has become a popular target in recent years for teams revamping their front offices. So far this spring, he has interviewed with the Pelicans and been linked to the Wizards’ opening as well. Previously, his name came up when the Pistons (2018) and Hawks (2017) were looking to hire new executives.
Prior to joining the Nets in 2016, Langdon worked for one year in Cleveland’s front office and several years in San Antonio’s scouting department. The 42-year-old played professionally from 1998 to 2011, though he only appeared in 119 NBA games, spending the majority of his playing career in international leagues.
