NEW YORK (AP) - Sacramento Mayor and former NBA All-Star Kevin Johnson will lead a search committee to find a new executive director for the NBA Players Association.
The union has been seeking a replacement for Billy Hunter since ousting him in February 2013. The NBPA says Monday it hopes to have one in place by the start of next season.
Johnson will work with union president Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers and acting executive director Ron Klempner to keep players and agents aware of the process.
