Billy Hunter Says NBPA Will Seek Dismissal Of League's Suit

NBPA Exec Dir Billy Hunter said the players will seek the dismissal of a lawsuit and an unfair labor practices charge the NBA filed earlier today, and urged the NBA to go back to the bargaining table with the players before the '11-12 NBA season is “seriously jeopardized.”

Hunter said in a statement, "The litigation tactics of the NBA today are just another example of their bad faith bargaining and we will seek the complete dismissal of the actions as they are totally without merit. The NBA Players Association has not made any decision to disclaim its role as the collective bargaining representative of the players and has been engaged in good faith bargaining with the NBA for over two years. We urge the NBA to engage with us at the bargaining table and to use more productively the short time we have left before the 2011-12 season is seriously jeopardized.”
