New York • A review of the NBA's players' association found that executive director Billy Hunter did nothing illegal with union funds, but enough wrong that players should consider whether he should remain in his position.

The report revealed that Hunter's current contract was never properly approved and he failed to disclose that information to the NBPA's executive committee or player representatives.

The eight-month review by the firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP was released Thursday.

It states that Hunter's actions were "inconsistent" with his financial obligations to the union, "displayed poor judgment, paid little attention to the appearance of impropriety. It adds that "his conduct could foreseeably create and did not properly manage conflicts of interest."
