Statement from NBPA Executive Director Michele Roberts on the Passing of Wes Unseld

 NEW YORK, NY, June 3, 2020 – “It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of NBA legend and Hall of Famer Wes Unseld. Wes enjoyed a remarkable playing career and later transitioned to become a successful coach and general manager at a time when few men of color occupied those positions. In the community in which he played and worked, he used his platform to uplift others, particularly focusing on and prioritizing educational opportunities for students in Baltimore. Wes’s legacy will live on and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and the entire Wizards organization.”
