— During the annual All-Star meeting of the Board of Player Representatives of the National Basketball Players Association on Friday, 10-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks was elected to serve on the union's Executive Committee.

"We expect Carmelo to make an immediate contribution to our union," said Executive Director Michele Roberts. "He's passionate, has the respect of the players, and I'm sure he will have a strong point of view during the collective bargaining process."

Anthony begins his three-year term effective immediately as a voting member of the nine-player NBPA Executive Committee. Anthony replaces Willie Green, who served for three years and is not currently an active NBA player.

"I want to thank Willie for his service to the NBPA," said Roberts. "He has been an active and engaged member of the Executive Committee and he will always be a part of the NBPA family."

Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala and James Jones were all re-elected to serve additional three year terms on the Executive Committee. The other members of the Executive Committee are Chris Paul (President), LeBron James (First Vice President), Steve Blake, Kyle Korver, and Anthony Tolliver
