LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers teammate James Jones and Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul have been served with notices of deposition in former NBA Player’s Union executive director Billy Hunter’s wrongful termination lawsuit against the NBPA, sources said Thursday. Paul operates as union president, James as vice president and Jones as secretary treasurer. Hunter is suing the NBPA for $10.5 million in addition to attorney’s fees, for compensation he did not receive after his ouster in February 2013.

In addition to the deposition notices served by Hunter’s legal team, California Superior Court judge Judge Huey Cotton has ordered the NBPA to turn over the documents regarding an investigation conducted by law firm Paul Weiss into Hunter’s reign as executive director, a review that preceded Hunter’s ouster. According to a Sports Business Daily report, Cotton has also ordered the union to pay $30,550 in sanctions for failing to comply with a previous order to turn over documents.

Kevin Love: Those of you who know Champ will appreciate this… I’d like to tribute the best teammate I’ve ever had, James Jones aka Champ. You taught me more than you know the past 2 years— what it takes to win, how to be a better teammate, how to balance the good/bad off the court, and most importantly…putting team first. Sacrifice for the better of the team, and in order to lead sometimes you have to learn to follow. You’ve been to 6 straight Finals. You’ve been the constant presence we needed in the locker room. You’re the ultimate work horse. The lessons you taught me will stay with me for the rest of my career and life after basketball.
