Sources: Pels hiring Swin Cash as senior exec

The New Orleans Pelicans are hiring former UConn and WNBA star Swin Cash to a senior front office position, league sources told ESPN.

The team will name Cash vice president of basketball operations and team development, sources say. She will scout, help guide player development on and off the floor, and assume other roles within the organization.

This is the latest in a string of major hirings by David Griffin, the Pelicans new executive president of basketball operations — and the man charged with handling the Anthony Davis situation. Last month, Griffin hired Aaron Nelson, head of the Phoenix Suns’ highly regarded training staff for two decades, as the Pelicans’ new vice president of player care and performance. Two weeks later, Griffin hired Trajan Langdon away from the Brooklyn Nets to serve as the Pelicans’ new general manager.

Cash played 15 seasons in the WNBA, and made four All-Star teams. 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 also appeared across several television platforms in an analyst role, including on NBA TV last season with Griffin.
