(AllHipHop News) Basketball legend Clyde Drexler has stepped in to replace Ice Cube as the commissioner of the rapper’s BIG3 league.
The rap star and actor briefly filled the spot after firing Roger Mason, Jr. earlier this year, but now he has landed a big deal after inviting 10-time NBA All-Star Drexler to join the team.
The retired sportsman, who was a coach of one of the teams in the league last year has signed a three-year deal to be the new commissioner.
“As Commissioner he will help lead the BIG3’s basketball operations as well as executing the league’s long-term strategy on all fronts,” a spokesman for the league said in a statement.
Ice Cube adds, “Clyde is a consummate professional, revered businessman, and indisputably one of the greatest players to ever play the game of basketball. We were thrilled to have his early support as a coach for our inaugural season, and couldn’t be more pleased to welcome him to the executive team as BIG3 Commissioner.”
