Union to Vote on Billy Hunter’s Removal

The NBA Players Association will conduct a vote during All-Star Weekend to determine the fate of executive director Billy Hunter, who has been embattled for months. Hunter has hired legal representation, Thomas Ashley, who released a statement regarding the NBPA’s ability to oust him. If Hunter is removed by a vote of the executive committee, he may pursue legal action. Hunter is expected to release his complete response to the allegations in coming days.
There is a perception that NBPA president Derek Fisher is consulting with the NBA about his desire to remove Hunter and wants to be executive director. But he tweeted last week that he is not interested in the top job, suggesting that someone with a legal background should take over.
