Grantland's Zach Lowe reports that Kyle Korver has been re-elected as vice president of the NBA Players Union and will serve a three-year term.

The Players Union has experienced a turbulent period following the 2011 lockout through the ouster of of Billy Hunter as union chief. Chris Paul has since replaced Derek Fisher as president of the players union and the group tabbed DC attorney Michele Roberts as its Executive Director earlier this week. The move to bring in Roberts may work out, but the election was hardly a consensus and shows that there are still real problems facing the union.

Korver is a well-respected player and is a quality leader and role model for the union. Strong leadership will be essential to getting the union back on the same page and presenting a united front by the time labor negotiations begin again.
