LeBron James, after weighing a run for president of the National Basketball Players Association, decided against making a bid for the job, multiple media outlets reported Monday.

The union is looking for a new president after Derek Fisher’s term ended this summer. The NBPA is also attempting to overcome a recent scandal involving the alleged misuse of union funds by then-executive director Billy Hunter.

ESPN.com reported that James may back his Miami Heat teammate, NBPA secretary-treasurer James Jones, for the presidency.
