 The former head of the NBA players' association has filed a lawsuit alleging president Derek Fisher had a secret deal with owners during the 2011 lockout that benefited himself, his publicist and certain players.
Billy Hunter contends that Fisher undermined Hunter's efforts to make an agreement and interfered with his job as executive director.
Filed Thursday in California Superior Court, the suit also names the National Basketball Players Association and Jamie Wior, Fisher's publicist. It says Fisher and Wior worked after the lockout ended ``to terminate his employment without cause and in violation of his contract.''
Hunter was ousted in February following an investigation into his business practices. Fisher finished the season with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
