The New Orleans Pelicans have named Swin Cash to a front office position. According to initial reports by ESPN’s Zach Lowe , the former WNBA player and two-time NCAA champion with UCONN will assume the roles of vice president of basketball operations and team development. Cash will be scouting, assisting in the guidance of player development on and off the court and will take on other roles within the organisation.
Cash was 15-year WNBA vet, a three-time WNBA champion and played in four All-Star games. After hanging up the sneaks in 2016, she was hired as the New York Liberty’s director of franchise development in 2017.
Griffin has been wheeling and dealing as he rebuilds the Pelicans front office, making big hirings such as Aaron Nelson, who for two decades headed the Fountain of Youth , aka, the Phoenix Suns training staff. He chased that with prying Trajan Langdon away from the Brooklyn Nets to be his general manager
