David White, the national executive director of SAG-AFTRA, could be headed to the National Basketball Players Assn.
White, 45, is a leading candidate to become executive director of the NBA Players Assn., two people familiar with the matter said.
SAG-AFTRA declined to comment on the situation, which was first reported by Yahoo Sports on Friday.
White has been interviewed by NBA Player Assn. President and Clippers star Chris Paul and by the executive committee's members, sources said.
If he is selected for the job, White would be taking over the NBA Players Assn. at a tumultuous time, replacing Billy Hunter, who was fired from the association amid allegations of nepotism, bribery and abuse of resources. Hunter sued the union last May alleging defamation and breach of contract.
