Pelicans Hire Swin Cash As VP Of Basketball Operations, Team Development”

The New Orleans Pelicans have hired a WNBA star to a prominent front office position.

The hire makes Cash one of the highest-ranking females in the NBA and continues a string of strong hires by executive vice president of basketball David Griffin.

Cash will scout, help guide player development on and off the floor while also assuming other roles within the organization.

New Orleans announced yet another significant offseason addition Monday, hiring Swin Cash as Vice President of Basketball Operations and Team Development.

"We are beyond thrilled to welcome Swin Cash and her family to the New Orleans Pelicans", Griffin said in a statement. Her duties will include scouting, as well as developing players on and off the court.

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, 39, joins a Pelicans front office revitalized by David Griffin, the former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager who was brought on as the franchise's executive president of basketball operations.

Griffin hired Aaron Nelson as the new vice president of player care and performance back in June. Nelson formerly was head trainer with the Phoenix Suns.

Cash played 15 seasons in the WNBA and made four All-Star teams. She also won two Olympic gold medals with the U.S. Women's National Team (2004, 2012) and was named one of the WNBA's Top 20 Best and Most Influential players.

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.
