Billy Hunter, executive director of the National Basketball Players Association, is urging that union president Derek Fisher resign, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Fisher has refused.

The tension between Hunter and Fisher has reportedly been brewing for months, beginning with last summer's NBA lockout. Things came to a head this past week when Fisher convinced the NBPA's executive committee to vote for an independent auditor to look into Hunter’s regime.

Hunter and his legal team sent out a brief memo on Tuesday night, announcing that the audit had been cancelled.

"The executive committee recognized that the review was unnecessary since there had been a recent independent audit of the NBPA's finances which raised no issues," the memo said.
