Oakland’s Billy Hunter pushed aside as head of NBA Players Association

Friday, February 1, 2013

The NBA Players Association’s executive director has been placed on indefinite leave amid a scandal involving alleged nepotism and improper spending. AP says the group’s president, former long-time Lakers star Derek Fisher, is forming an interim executive committee and advisory committee to oversee the players union.

Hunter is a former football player who went to law school after an NFL career with the Redskins and Dolphins. He’s been criticized for padding the union’s payroll with family members and resisting an outside audit of its finances.
