Former NBA player Tamika Tremaglio has decided to step down as the acting executive director of the NBA players union. In her place, four-time NBA champion Andre Igoudala has been named as her successor. The 39-year-old player announced his official retirement weeks ago after a successful 19-season career. Igoudala expressed his honor in taking on the role, noting his unique opportunity to draw on his extensive experience as a player.
Tremaglio served as the acting executive director for over two years and stepped down to pursue new opportunities in her career. However, she will work alongside Igoudala to ensure a smooth transition. She is proud of the accomplishments in collective bargaining and is ready for a new chapter.
Igoudala was a key player in several CBA negotiations during his time on the NBPA Executive Committee and has contributed to empowering players to think like business leaders. CJ McCollum, the current NBPA president, expressed excitement about having a former player lead as executive director, calling it an “exciting proposition.”
Igoudala recently announced his retirement after 19 successful seasons in the NBA, citing family as a reason for his decision. His last coach, Steve Kerr, praised his unique abilities and leadership on and off the court.
