Donald Fehr reportedly not interested in becoming NBPA chief

NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr will not be taking the same position with the NBA players union, a source told Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal.

Executive director Billy Hunter's future with the NBPA is considered tenuous after he was placed on indefinite leave Friday.

Fehr was first linked to the NBAP through a CBSSports.com report of an influential group of NBA player agents pushing for his hire. Fehr's recent handling of the NHLPA's new CBA and his past success as the executive director of the Major League Baseball Players' Association reportedly could provide enough clout to win approval of NBA players.

Fehr originally declined to comment on the report while Hunter still holds his title as the NBPA executive director. Hunter was placed on leave following a negative independent review of his business practices, including the involvement of family members as NBPA employees and vendors.
