NBA Players Set To Elect New NBPA Exec Dir, With Three Candidates Remaining
Published July 28, 2014
A DIFFERENCE OF OPINIONS: YAHOO SPORTS' Adrian Wojnarowski noted Johnson left the search process after he "lost a power struggle" with the NBPA Exec Committee. Sources said that Johnson "wanted to play a larger controlling role in the Monday meetings to present three finalists for the job, and executive committee members balked at the idea, citing U.S. Department of Labor regulations and NBPA bylaws." Sources added that Paul had "a strong relationship with Johnson, but there was less support of Johnson within the executive committee" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 7/25). USA TODAY's Sam Amick cited a source as saying that the decision was "sparked by a philosophical difference in how the search was handled in its later stages" (USATODAY.com, 7/26).
