The National Basketball Players Association is being investigated by the U.S Attorney’s Office in Manhattan after President Derek Fisher asked for independent reviews of its finances and business practices, the union said in a statement.

Union Executive Director Billy Hunter was notified of the investigation by subpoena for documents on April 25, according to two people with direct knowledge of the situation. The people were granted anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the investigation.

“The NBPA will cooperate fully with the government’s investigation,” the statement said.

1. Go get 'em Derek Fisher!

Billy Hunter is corrupt as hell, and needs to lose his position as the head of the union.
