Billy Hunter voted out

Billy Hunter was forced out as President of the NBAPA because the players thought he was in cahoots with the owners and he stole a bunch of money.

Hunter is now firing back with a lawsuit.

Billy Hunter sued the National Basketball Players Association and president Derek Fisher on Thursday for defamation and breach of contract stemming from his dismissal as the union’s executive director.

“Once the lockout ended with an agreement in line with the owners’ demands, Fisher and Wior waged a campaign to terminate his employment without cause and in violation of his contract,” the lawsuit alleges, according to a press release from Hunter’s attorneys, the firm Sidley Austin in San Francisco.

Hunter is seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages based on his termination, at the time of which he was owed $10.5 million in salary through 2015. The former executive director is seeking, at minimum, the money he was owed on his contract at the time of his termination.
