The New Orleans Pelicans are hiring former UConn and WNBA star Swin Cash for a senior front-office position.
They will name Cash vice president of basketball operations and team development.
She will scout, help guide player development on and off the floor, and assume other roles within the organization.
This is the latest hiring by David Griffin, the Pelicans’ new executive president of basketball operations.
Last month, Griffin hired Aaron Nelson as the Pelicans’ new vice president of player care and performance. Two weeks later, Griffin hired Trajan Langdon to serve as the Pelicans’ new general manager.
Cash, 39, played 15 seasons in the WNBA and an All-Star in four of those seasons. She was a member of the 2000 and 2002 national championship teams at UConn and won three WNBA titles.
In 2017, the New York Liberty named Cash director of franchise development. She has appeared across television platforms in an analyst role as well.
