Alaska NBA veteran Langdon named to Brooklyn Nets leadership post
Trajan Langdon, Alaska’s first NBA player, used his Russian and Texan connections to land his new job as the assistant general manager for the Brooklyn Nets.
Langdon, 39, joined the NBA team’s front office on Tuesday. His hiring was the first major move by Sean Marks, who became the team’s general manager three weeks ago.
Langdon has a history with both Marks and Mikhail Prokhorov, the Russian billionaire who bought the Nets in 2010.
