After nearly 20 years, one of the highest-ranking female executives in professional sports is calling a time out.
Heidi Ueberroth, who has overseen the National Basketball Association’s global expansion as president of NBA International, said she will leave her post at the end of the year. In an interview Tuesday, the 48-year-old Ms. Ueberroth said she will consult with the NBA after she leaves, but she hasn’t publicly announced other plans.
Her exit comes amid a leadership transition at the NBA. Last fall, Commissioner David Stern announced that he would turn over the reins to his deputy, Adam Silver, in February 2014. No replacement deputy commissioner has yet been named.
