• Hunter's lawyers: NBA union chief's contract valid

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Feb 15, 2013
    Hunter's lawyers say his 2010 contract extension was valid and the leave of absence he's been placed on is not. Unable to secure an invitation to address NBA players directly, embattled union executive director Billy Hunter has released online his response to a report that criticized his leadership. The attorneys argue that contract extensions were not governed by the same rules as appointments, so Hunter's most recent deal that increased his salary to $3 million a year didn't require the same ratification as his 1996 appointment to his position. Under the constitution and bylaws, such approval is only needed for the 'appointment' of an Executive Director.
