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

New Orleans Pelicans basketball operations chief David Griffin says the club has hired former WNBA and US national team player Swin Cash to serve in an executive role.

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. "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".

But it sounds as if New Orleans will give Swin Cash a position with similar stature to Krauskopf's. In that role, per ESPN, Cash will assist in scouting and team development "on and off the floor". She retired from the WNBA in 2016, and was previously named director of franchise development with the New York Liberty in 2017. After excelling in high school, she won two national titles at UConn, including the Huskies' unbeaten 39-0 campaign of 2001-02.

Off the court, Cash has covered sports and culture for several different media outlets such as Turner Sports and CBS Sports networks.

"I am so excited to join the New Orleans Pelicans.", Cash said in a statement.
