NEW YORK -- Executive director Billy Hunter has unveiled a series of reforms at the NBA players' association to improve areas that were criticized in a recent review of the union.

Hunter says the NBPA has adopted an anti-nepotism policy. He has fired his daughter, Robyn, and daughter-in-law Megan Inaba will leave her position following the All-Star game next month.

The new policies were first laid out in a letter to a players' committee last week, and were announced in a release from the union Wednesday.

There also will be conflict of interest and employee hiring policies, and certain positions at the union will be eliminated or reorganized.

The report conducted by a New York law firm found Hunter did nothing illegal but made a number of poor decisions in his hiring and business practices, and recommended players discuss his future with the organization at their All-Star meeting.
