The NBPA executive committee "has placed executive director Billy Hunter on a leave of absence," a source told Yahoo! Sports, and NBPA counsel Ron Klempner has been made interim executive director.
This is only going to get uglier for Hunter, who has attempted to save face in the wake of some seriously negative evidence of his tenure coming to light. Yahoo! Sports is also reporting that this leave of absence is the "first step in a process" to have Hunter removed permanently.
