NEW YORK — LeBron James has been elected as a vice president of the NBA Players Association, according to a person familiar with the decision.

The person said James, the Cleveland Cavaliers star ,was elected Friday during the union’s annual meeting as part of all-star weekend.

Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul, the union’s president, reached out to James, who wanted to be involved in future talks for the next collective bargaining agreement, which could take place in 2017.

James is a four-time MVP and regarded as the game’s most powerful player — on and off the floor. He has been outspoken in the past on numerous player-related issues.
