Paul Could Replace Fisher As Union President
Chris Paul has emerged as a potential replacement for NBA Players Association president Derek Fisher.
"We can't, by bylaws, say who is going to be the president. That would have to go to a vote," NBPA vice president Mo Evans said. "Chris Paul's name may circulate as one of the players who could fulfill that role, given that he's a younger player (at 26), on the executive committee and played a huge role during the lockout. He has the respect of a lot of players."
The NBPA executive committee voted 8-0 for Fisher’s resignation, according to a statement the committee released late Friday.
Fisher has called for "an independent review of the business practices and finances" of the Players Association.
