Ousted NBA players association executive director Billy Hunter alleges in a lawsuit that president Derek Fisher had a secret deal with owners during the 2011 lockout that benefited himself, his publicist and certain players. Hunter contends that Fisher undermined Hunters efforts to make an agreement and interfered with his position by secretly negotiating with select owners in violation of union bylaws. Filed Thursday in California Superior Court, the suit seeks unspecified damages for defamation and breach of contract. It also names the National Basketball Players Association and Jamie Wior, Fishers publicist, and says Fisher and Wior worked after the lockout ended "to terminate his employment without cause and in violation of his contract." "Wior harboured aspirations to assume a position of responsibility with the NBPA," the suit says. "She set out to craft a new public persona for Fisher, taking control of his media appearances and public statements and encouraging him to overreach his authority." Hunter was ousted in February following an investigation into his business practices that found no illegal conduct but cited several conflicts of interest, questionable business decisions and hiring practices. Fisher finished the season with the Oklahoma City Thunder. "Its unfortunate that I must take this action against an organization where I had the privilege of working with many dedicated associates over 17 years," Hunter said in a statement. "Im proud of our record of achievement on behalf of players during my tenure as Executive Director and will continue to stand up for their interests. But I cannot let stand attacks on my character or accept what has been done." The suit says owners were aided by Fisher when they locked out players in July 2011 after the expiration of the last collective bargaining agreement. It says the veteran guard realized he could have been on his last contract as a player, so he wanted to secure a "soft landing" after his career by keeping good relations with the league and team owners, even while Hunter was committed to a firm stance. "Unbeknownst to Hunter, however, Fisher was secretly negotiating with the Certain Owners -- on his own and without any authority -- to settle the negotiations on terms less favourable to the players," the suit says. "The NBPAs Constitution and By-Laws vest in Hunter the sole right to conduct collective bargaining negotiations on behalf of the Union. Fishers interference in the negotiations exceeded his authority and undermined the Unions negotiating power. Wiors interference was completely without authority or basis. Ultimately, the players accepted a new CBA that left them with a greatly reduced share of the NBAs revenues." The lockout ended in November 2011 with players receiving a 50-50 split of basketball-related income, after they were guaranteed 57 per cent in the previous deal. The relationship between Hunter and Fisher at times seemed strained, with Fisher often speaking to reporters alone after bargaining sessions while Hunter left quickly. Fisher said he had just learned of the lawsuit before meeting with reporters in Oklahoma City and didnt want to comment. "Obviously in any type of legal situation, you have to be very careful about what you say. So, I guess at the appropriate time Ill be able to respond or make a statement," he said. Wior and a union official didnt immediately return messages. Hunter led the union since 1996 before he was voted out during the All-Star break with more than $10.5 million left on his contract.

Federer has not played since Wimbledon and Nadal wrapped up his season in October. Djokovic had featured in the inaugural season for Dubai but had missed the 2015 edition.One of the Big Four is definitely coming. We did not want to reveal all our cards today. We will announce the name in the next 48 hours, Bhupathi told PTI, confirming that a few big names will be missed.All the players we had last year are back. We had a long list of players who wanted to come but unfortunately could not come because there were no sspots.dddddddddddd Everything is good. Thats why they say dont believe in everything you read.Bhupathi said the Indian team had shifted base to Hyderabad to take the league to other parts of the country.There is no particular reason, we did it there (Delhi) for two years, the fans enjoyed world class tennis. The concept was built about having one team for country. Last year, we did it in Kobe (in Japan), this year we are doing it in Tokyo. The owners wanted an opportunity to move to a different city, to see if they get good buzz, Bhuapthi said.Phillipines Mavericks are also not featuring in the 2016 season.?The owners still own the team but there was some political instability there, there were worries about players travelling there, Bhupathi clarified on the absence of Mavericks.Indias veteran star Leander Paes, who played for Japan Warriors last year, will also be missing this season.?The number of players changed since one team sat out, Bhupathi said.Multiple Grand Slam winner Serena Williams is the biggest name revealed so far among women. World No.5 Kei Nishikori is the highest-ranked male player confirmed so far.
