08:00 AM ET 01.21 | Even after an unflattering report, NBPA Executive Director Billy Hunter isn't going anywhere, at least for now. While he had and still may have strong support among players, a transition is underway starting with a relatively fresh executive committee comprised of players. Some powerful player-agents were often unhappy with Hunter during the lockout and he fended them off. This report gives those agents more resolve to replace Hunter. One agent told USA TODAY Sports that many agents will be satisfied as long as Hunter is not involved in the next round of collective bargaining negotiations, which could begin as early the summer of 2017 when either the league or players can opt out of the current CBA.

He's a stone-cold gangster.

The guy made more money that most NBA players in their careers. He should happily go away.
