Warriors’ Andre Iguodala Replaces LeBron James as VP of NBPA

There is a changing of the guard in the NBPA.

It was announced that Golden State Warriors veteran Andre Iguodala has been elected as the new vice president of the NBPA, replacing LeBron James. Iguodala has previously served as the vice president of the Executive Committee since 2013.

“I am honoured to be chosen by my peers to step into this position and take on a larger responsibility within the NBPA,” Iguodala said in a statement following his election. “I look forward to continuing my work with (NBPA executive director) Michele (Roberts), Chris Paul and the Executive Committee to accomplish the best possible outcomes for the union and our future members.”

In another bit of news on the topic, Malcolm Brogdon, Jaylen Brown, and Bismack Biyombo have all been elected to serve as the vice presidents on the Executive committee.

“Malcolm, Jaylen and Bismack have all shown a great commitment to the union since they arrived in the league,” NBPA president Chris Paul said. “I have no doubt they will bring a fresh perspective and passion to the Executive Committee and I am excited to start working with them.”

The player’s union will lean on their newly instilled power structure as the time to negotiate the upcoming CBA approaches. The players and the owners will both be eligible to opt out of the current agreement in 2022.
