Following a scathing report that criticized his business practices, NBPA executive director Billy Hunter fired both his daughter and daughter-in-law from the union.
Hunter penned a letter to the union's special committee of players dated Jan. 23 that Robyn Hunter would be relieved of her duties on Jan. 25. Megan Inaba will remain at her job to help with All-Star festivities before being let go on Feb. 17. The union chief also stated that the NBPA would no longer be working with Prim Capital, the firm that employs his son Todd.
These decisions come less than two weeks after the report filed by the firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP pointed out certain "conflicts of interest" in the NBPA due to Hunter hiring and doing business with family members. The review implicated Hunter of other wrongdoings as well, leading to several players and agents calling for his job.
A decision will likely be made on Hunter's future during the All-Star Break when the NBPA holds its annual meeting.
