It’ll be a busy offseason for the Pelicans, who have the number one overall pick in the NBA draft and have to present a convincing argument to Anthony Davis as to why he should remain in New Orleans.
Langdon was picked 11th overall in the 1999 NBA draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers. The former Duke Blue Devil played in the league from 1999-2002 before playing a decade overseas, where he led CSKA Moscow to two EuroLeague titles in 2006 and 2008.
