After 14 months without a permanent leader and with the protracted search under scrutiny from powerful player agents, the National Basketball Players Association announced Monday that Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson will take over the lead in the search for a new executive director.
Johnson, who played in the NBA for 12 years, successfully led a campaign last year to get funding for a new arena and put together an ownership group to fend off a strong bid to move the Kings to Seattle. That success convinced current NBPA president Chris Paul to ask Johnson to take over this thorny issue and the expectation now is a new executive director will be in place by the start of next season.
