NBA Players Association places Billy Hunter on indefinite leave

Billy Hunter placed on leave



Last year, the NBA Players Association had issues with their head man Billy Hunter as they were locked out by the NBA until late December.

On Friday, the NBA Players Association announced that the embattled union chief has been placed on indefinite leave of absence.

Longtime union lawyer Ron Klempner was appointed acting executive director of the union until every member of the union "can have a vote in the matter," the NBPA said. 

Hunter will likely be removed as this is the first step. His leadership has been called into question due to unusual business practices. The moves were announced by NBPA president Derek Fisher, whose inquiries into the union's finances and business practices under Hunter led to a nine-month investigation resulting in a 469-page report detailing Hunter's failings.

Fisher will be on site at the union offices in New York to "assist during this time of transition," according to his news release. According to CBSSports.com, Fisher may be positioning himself to run for the executive director position when Hunter is permanently removed. 

There were all sorts of concerns about the way Hunter used his family for positions. Reportedly, the union either employed or worked with many people who had ties to Hunter, who hired his daughter and nephew, permitted a daughter-in-law to remain on staff, and spent more than $80,000 of union funds to evaluate an investment in a banking firm that employed his son.
 
Hunter fired his daughter and daughter-in-law less than two weeks after the report came out.
 
The report also found that Hunter spent more than $100,000 of union funds to purchase gifts for executive committee members, including a $22,000 watch for Fisher in June 2010, and that he made "questionable choices" when charging travel expenses to the NBPA.
