NBA G-League players will vote on Saturday to determine whether they will form a union, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowksi.

The NBA’s players association will assist in the formation of the union, with at least 50 per cent of G League players needing to vote in favour of the motion in order for it to pass.

The G-League union would be separate from the NBA players union and would assist with creative bargaining with the NBA on topics such as travel, salary and housing.

The G-League season has been on pause, along with the current NBA campaign, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
