The NBPA released the following statement on the passing of Gene Conley:

NEW YORK, JULY 6, 2017 — “As unique of an athlete as he was, Gene Conley was even more special as a player advocate. He was a leader in the battle to belatedly bring our pioneer players into the NBA pension plan, and so many of our legends have him to thank for adding a measure of comfort and security to their lives. He will be missed.”
