The National Basketball Players Association announced on Monday that Celtics forward Jaylen Brown was elected as a vice president and will serve his three-year term on the Executive Committee. The 22-year-old had formerly acted as the alternative Boston Celtics player representative.

Andre Iguodala of the Golden State Warriors was elected First Vice President of the NBPA, replacing LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers whose four-year term had just expired.  In addition to Brown, Malcolm Brogdon of the Milwaukee Bucks and Bismack Biyombo of the Charlotte Hornets were all elected to serve as vice presidents on the Executive Committee. The three replace Carmelo Anthony, Stephen Curry and Iguodala.

Along with Paul (president), the other members of the Executive Committee include Anthony Tolliver (secretary-treasurer), Pau Gasol, CJ McCollum and Garrett Temple (vice presidents).
