Chris Paul re-elected as president of the NBPA
NEW YORK (AP) — Chris Paul has been re-elected as president of the National Basketball Players Association.
Paul’s new four-year term begins immediately. He will be assisted by the union’s newly elected vice president, Garrett Temple of the Sacramento Kings.
In his first term as president, Paul most notably helped the players and the NBA come together on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement that goes into effect on July 1.
Paul says he’s “humbled that my fellow players have voted to have me continue.”
Temple has a three-year term as vice president, which also begins immediately. He replaces Kyle Korver in that role.
The other members of the NBA’s Executive Committee are First Vice President LeBron James, Secretary-Treasurer James Jones, and Vice Presidents Carmelo Anthony, Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala and Anthony Tolliver.
