LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers teammate James Jones and Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul have been served with notices of deposition in former NBA players’ union executive director Billy Hunter’s wrongful termination lawsuit against the National Basketball Players Association, sources said Thursday.
Paul operates as union president, James as vice president and Jones as secretary treasurer. Hunter is suing the NBPA for $10.5 million in addition to attorney’s fees, for compensation he did not receive after his ouster in February 2013. James was the most recent of the three to receive his notice. Former union president and player Derek Fisher was also served on Feb. 26, 2016.
