Kyrie replaces Pau as a VP of players’ union


Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving has been elected as a vice president of the National Basketball Players Association.

Irving replaces Pau Gasol on the NBPA executive committee. Gasol’s three-year term expired.

“This was the right time for me to run for a leadership position in the NBPA,” Irving said. “I have been an observer and a participant in union affairs for a while, but for the most part, I was off on the sidelines, supporting our Executive Committee as they made important decisions. At this point in my career, I wanted to join forces with those guys and take a bigger role outside of the basketball court and within our union.”

Irving joins the NBPA’s executive committee, which also features Chris Paul (president), Andre Iguodala (first VP), Anthony Tolliver (secretary-treasurer), and vice presidents Bismack Biyombo, Malcolm Brogdon, Jaylen Brown, CJ McCollum and Garrett Temple.
