CJ McCollum, replaces CP3 as president of the NBPA

Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum was elected president of the National Basketball Players Association, succeeding two-term president Chris Paul, sources told ESPN.

McCollum has been vice chairman of the NBPA executive committee since 2018 and has been deeply involved in union decision-making and negotiations with the NBA.

The presidency begins with an ongoing search to find a successor to NBPA CEO Michele Roberts, who has led the union since 2014.

McCollum, 29, will be tasked with leading the union in collective bargaining talks with the NBA on a deal that could expire in 2022-2023 if either party chooses not to participate, or before the 2023-2024 season. .

McCollum has a significant court profile with the Blazers, which can be helpful in leading the players’ association. He has averaged nearly 19 points per game in nine seasons since he was selected 10th from Lehigh in 2013.
