FISHER HAS NO INTENT TO RESIGN: CBSSPORTS.com’s Ken Berger noted NBPA President Derek Fisher raised questions about allegations of Hunter's nepotism and “other issues after the lockout ended, but was rebuffed by the rest of the executive committee and asked to resign.” But sources said that Fisher “refused, and has no intention of stepping down with two years left on his term.” Still, a source said that the issues being examined by the law firm conducting the business review “go beyond Hunter's rift with Fisher and the charges of nepotism.” The source added that Hunter's “salary, and the structure of the union constitution and bylaws that resulted in its approval, are among the other issues being examined” (CBSSPORTS.com, 9/29).
