The NBA’s G League players will begin voting on April 25 on the creation of a union, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
The NBPA is helping with the creation of a G League-governed players association that would reportedly need “more than 50 percent of players to sign an electronic authorization card for passage.”
Wojnarowski also notes that there is “optimism” among agents and players that the vote will lead to the union’s formation.
That would allow G League players to collectively bargain with the NBA and G League.
Some issues that G League players have faced in the past include housing, salary and travel.
“We support the players’ right to unionize,” G League president Shareef Abdur-Rahim told ESPN. “We view this as a positive thing and are looking to continue to grow our league for the players to develop and accomplish their dreams.”
