Former NBA player Andre Iguodala, 39, the reigning Finals MVP, is taking on a new challenge.
Iguodala has been named acting general secretary of the NBA Players’ Union, ESPN reported on Tuesday.
Iguodala replaces Tamika Tremaglio, who stepped down from the position, and will lead the union until a replacement is found.
For now, the players’ union has begun the process of finding a new general secretary. ESPN reported that Iguodala could be the one to take over as acting general secretary.
Iguodala has played 1,231 games in his career. He won four championships with the Golden State Warriors and was named Finals MVP in 2014-15.
He was named to the All-Rookie Team in 2004-05, was a two-time All-Defensive Team selection and a one-time All-Star. 캡틴토토
He has been a member of the NBA Players Union Executive Committee since 2015. He has invested in several businesses and has experienced success, ESPN reported.
As the previous general secretary, Tremaglio led negotiations for the new seven-year labor agreement announced by NBA labor and management in April. He has since reportedly discussed his resignation with the players’ union leadership.
New Orleans Pelicans guard CJ McCollum, who serves as the union’s president, said: “It’s an exciting proposition to have a former player lead the union. We are grateful for Tamika’s dedication and leadership and look forward to welcoming Iguodala as our new acting general secretary.”
