WNBA icon Swin Cash is joining the New Orleans Pelicans' front office, according to a report from ESPN.
The network reported Monday morning that Cash, a three-time WNBA champion and four-time all-star, will be named "vice president of basketball operations and team development" for the Pelicans under David Griffin, who was hired in April.
The Pelicans had not announced the move as of Monday morning.
Cash, 39, won two NCAA championship at UConn in the early 2000s before being selected No. 2 overall by the Detroit Shock in 2002. She went on to play with four other WNBA teams — and win two Olympic gold medals with the United States — before retiring in 2016.
Following the conclusion of her playing career, Cash then joined the New York Liberty as their director of franchise development. She has since worked as a television analyst for multiple networks.
