Longtime WNBA player Swin Cash will reportedly join the front office of the New Orleans Pelicans

Former WNBA star Swin Cash will assume a prominent role in the front office of the New Orleans Pelicans.

The New Orleans Pelicans have agreed to hire Swin Cash vice president of basketball operations and team development.

This is the latest progressive hire from Griffin as he adds Cash to a team of Trajan Langdon (General Manager) from the Brooklyn Nets and Aaron Nelson who led the Phoenix Suns' highly thought of training staff for two decades. In that role, per ESPN, Cash will assist in scouting and team development "on and off the floor".

"I am so excited to join the New Orleans Pelicans.", Cash said in a statement. "I want to extend my honest gratitude to Mrs. Benson, David Griffin and the Pelicans organization for the opportunity to serve in a leadership role in the front office".

The Pelicans have the No. 1 selection in the June 20 National Basketball Association draft and also must come up with a plan either to make disgruntled All-Star forward Anthony Davis happy or trade him.

Cash played 15 years in the WNBA then worked in the New York Liberty's front office. She won three WNBA titles and was an All-Star four times. Cash also won gold medals with the US women's team in the 2004 and 2012 Olympics.

Cash, 39, also won two national championship playing for Geno Auriemma at the University of CT and won three WNBA titles.

Griffin says the Pelicans value Cash's experience as a victor on many levels, her reputation for leadership, and her recent experience as a WNBA executive with the New York Liberty.
