After a scathing internal review and a pending U.S. Attorney's office criminal investigation, the National Basketball Players Association has placed executive director Billy Hunter on an indefinite leave of absence, Yahoo! Sports has learned.

Hunter was informed of the decision on Friday morning, and it is the first step in a process led by NBPA president Derek Fisher to have Hunter removed as executive director, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Union general counsel Ron Klempner has taken over as interim executive director.

As Yahoo! Sports reported recently, Hunter's current five-year, $15 million contract was signed without the needed approval of the union's player representatives. The union's leadership has retained outside counsel to help it through the suspension of Hunter, and plans to push the membership to oust Hunter, sources said.

good, he can go to hell, he had a golden oportunity to get things for players and instead he got a WORSE cba for them.
He should have been sacked anyway.
