NBA G League players will begin voting on Saturday on the formation of a union, according to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. 

According to the report, the NBA Players' Association is assisting heavily in the potential formation from a union, but it would be separate from the NBA players' union. The G League players' union would not include players on assignment or two-way players (which for the Wizards would include Admiral Schofield.)

The NBPA voted in February to support the formation of the union. The organization, according to past reports from Wojnarowski, started talking to the G League about a union in December. 

"We support the players' right to unionize," G League president Shareef Abdur-Rahim told ESPN in December. "We view this as a positive thing and are looking to continue to grow our league for the players to develop and accomplish their dreams."  

The union reportedly needs more than 50 percent of players to sign an electronic authorization card for passage.
