The Detroit Pistons have chosen Trajan Langdon as their new president of basketball operations, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal could be finalized as early as next week, according to Yahoo Sports' Vincent Goodwill.

Langdon spent the last five seasons as the New Orleans Pelicans general manager. The 48-year-old served as the assistant general manager for the Brooklyn Nets before joining the Pelicans in 2019.

Detroit was also reportedly considering Tim Connelly of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Dennis Lindsey of the Dallas Mavericks, and the Chicago Bulls' Marc Eversley for the position. The Pistons were also interested in Milwaukee Bucks general manager Jon Horst but were denied permission to speak with him.

The Pistons had the NBA's worst record for the second straight season. Detroit holds the fifth pick in the upcoming draft.
