The Sean Marks front office “tree” may be sprouting branches sooner than expected.
WSB-TV in Atlanta reports that the Hawks are interested in Trajan Langdon, Marks’ assistant GM.
Trajan Langdon is among the candidates the Atlanta Hawks are interested in speaking with regarding their vacant GM position, multiple NBA league sources tell Channel 2 Sports Director Zach Klein.
Langdon has served as the assistant general manager for the Brooklyn Nets since March, 2016.
But Brian Lewis of the Post tweeted that the Nets haven’t been contacted, at least as of yet.
The Nets would have to approve any interview since Langdon is under contract. Last year, the Nets had to get the Cavaliers permission to interview Langdon, then under contract with Cleveland. In announcing Langdon’s hiring, Marks publicly thanked the Cavaliers organization.
Langdon is close to Grant Hill, his Duke teammate, and he worked with Hawk head coach Mike Budenholzer when the two were with the Spurs front office.
If Langdon should leave, it would be the second loss this off-season. Mike Batiste, the Nets big man coach, has left for the Hornets where he will replaced Patrick Ewing. The former Knick big man is now head coach at Georgetown.
