Australian basketball legend Andrew Bogut has resigned from his role as a director of the Australian Basketball Players’ Association.
Andrew has recently taken an ownership stake in the Sydney Kings, and has stepped down from his role with the ABPA in accordance with the Association’s conflict policies which prevent directors from holding equity in NBL and WNBL clubs.
Andrew has been a highly influential voice for the Australian player movement since joining the ABPA as an inaugural director when the Association reformed in 2016.
“Andrew has been an important member of the ABPA board, playing a strong role in helping advance the professionalism of Australian players and the game,” ABPA CEO Jacob Holmes said.
“We are grateful to Andrew for the contributions he has made towards building ABPA into the strong and influential organisation that it is today.”
“I would like to thank the ABPA for the opportunity and privilege to represent the players through what has been a crucial and challenging time for our sport in Australia. We have achieved several landmark outcomes for players and I look forward to seeing Australian basketballers continue to progress and thrive in our sport long into the future.”
ABPA will announce a replacement for Andrew in due course.
