 NEW YORK (AP) -Phil Evans has resigned as president of the NBA Development League, effective July 1.
Evans decided not to relocate his family when the D-League moves from Greenville, S.C., to the NBA's headquarters in New York City.
A successor will be announced shortly, the league said, adding that Evans will serve as a consultant on D-League matters.
``Phil has played a key role in the growth and success of the D-League since its inception in 2001,'' commissioner David Stern said. ``His leadership and work ethic have helped lay the foundation for the D-League's continued growth.''
The D-League is relocating to give it direct access to the support and resources of the NBA and WNBA.
Before joining the D-League, Evans spent three seasons with the Continental Basketball Association in various positions, including deputy commissioner and general counsel.
