EWING REPORTEDLY LEADING CANDIDATE FOR UNION PRESIDENT
Published September 15, 1997
Patrick Ewing is a "leading candidate" to be named NBPA President when it announces results of a vote taken by secret ballot among the league's 29 player reps, according to an AP report in the DETROIT NEWS. Ewing had "pushed" in '95 "to try and persuade NBA players to decertify the union before the current" CBA was ratified. Ewing is currently VP of the union's nine-member executive committee, which is headed by Buck Williams (AP/DETROIT NEWS, 9/13).
