Chris Paul has refuted a report from Peter Vecsey that Michelle Roberts is no longer executive director of the National Basketball Players Association.
"Michele Roberts has been and continues to be our fearless leader," wrote Paul. "The Twitter post that is circulating suggesting Michele is no longer the NBPA Executive Director is untrue. A Search Firm has been hired to advise on union hiring and succession planning, which has not yet begun. In the meantime, the Executive Committee is proud to report that Michele remains the NBPA Executive Director, is very much 'in power,' and continues to enjoy the support of our members!"
Roberts signed a four-year extension in 2018.
