A former Duke men's basketball star has reportedly landed a major new NBA job, according to insider Shams Charania.

Trajan Langdon, who starred at Duke from 1994-1999, has reportedly landed an NBA general manager job.

The former Blue Devils standout has been hired by the New Orleans Pelicans.

Langdon will serve as the GM under David Griffin, who has taken over the front office.

"New Orleans has agreed on deal with Brooklyn assistant general manager Trajan Langdon to make him the new GM working alongside David Griffin," he reports.

Langdon, 43, was the No. 11 overall pick in the 1999 NBA Draft. He played in the league from 1999-2002 and then played overseas for a decade.

The former Duke star was a scout for the Spurs from 2012-15 and had been the Nets GM from 2016-19.

It's going to be a massive offseason for the Pelicans, who have the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft and have to make a decision on Anthony Davis.
