NEW YORK (AP) - The attorneys for the NBA players' association and president Derek Fisher have asked that the lawsuit filed by former executive director Billy Hunter be dismissed.
Four motions were filed Tuesday in California Superior Court, with the attorneys jointly saying that the ``allegations are unfounded, and we intend to defend this lawsuit aggressively.''
Hunter was ousted in February and filed a lawsuit in May, alleging that Fisher had a secret deal with owners during the 2011 lockout that benefited himself, his publicist, Jamie Wior, and certain players.
Hunter led the union from 1996 until he was unanimously removed following an investigation into his business practices that found no illegal conduct but cited several conflicts of interest, questionable business decisions and hiring practices.
He seeks unspecified damages for defamation and breach of contract.
