Pau Gasol elected to 3-year term on NBPA Executive Committee

Pau Gasol was elected on Friday as member of the National Basketball Players Association's executive committee, and starts his three-year term immediately. He replaces Steve Blake, who also had a three-year term and is not currently in the NBA.

NBPA executive director Michele Roberts says Gasol's addition is important because the number of international players in the league keeps rising.
