NEW YORK, NY, November 9, 2023 – The Executive Committee of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) announced today that it is appointing Andre Iguodala as the union's Acting Executive Director. Iguodala is replacing Tamika Tremaglio, who had served in the role since January 2021, and is stepping down from the position to pursue new opportunities after successfully leading the Union through the latest round of collective bargaining with the League earlier this year. Iguodala and Tremaglio will be working closely during this transition period.

Andre steps into the Acting Executive Director role after spending over a decade of his playing career on the Executive Committee. In addition to his work on the Committee, Andre has led multiple successful business ventures in his career off the court. With this experience, Iguodala is well-positioned to have an immediate impact in his role and work in tandem with the other members of the EC.

“I am honored to take on this role and serve the players, who are the heart and soul of the NBA,” said Iguodala. “I’m presented with a unique opportunity to take all that I’ve learned as a player over the course of my 19-year career and apply it to creating an even stronger and more influential union for current and future generations of players. I am thrilled to work alongside our extremely committed Executive Committee to lead the brotherhood through its next stage of advancement and development.”

"Having a former player lead as Executive Director of the union is an exciting proposition," said CJ McCollum, NBPA President. "We thank Tamika for her service and leadership throughout the CBA process and are thrilled to welcome Andre as Acting Executive Director."

“I am extremely proud of what we accomplished together in collective bargaining and over the past two years as a whole. With a new CBA in place, I am ready to move on from this role and pursue other opportunities,” said Tremaglio. “I am grateful to CJ, Andre, the entire Executive Committee, and all of the players for the opportunity to serve them these past few years. I’m confident that Andre will flourish in this role and continue to empower the players and this union to reach their full potential.”
