Attorney Len Simon Advising NBA Players Considering Split From Union

About 50 NBA players on a conference call last night to review their options in the NBA lockout received advice from antitrust attorney Len Simon, a source close to the players said. Simon is counsel at San Diego-based Robbins, Geller, Rudman + Dowd, and as was previously reported by SportsBusiness Journal, has been advising a powerful group of NBA player agents. Although 50 players were on the call, the group considering their options, including decertification, is larger than 50, the source said. The source requested anonymity because this person was not authorized to speak publicly for the group.
