UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — The National Basketball Association is now investigating Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
The Portland, Oregon weekly print, Willamette Week, published an article Tuesday, March 6, about a woman claiming Cuban had sexually assaulted her at a nightclub in 2011.
The weekly print obtained transcripts, with a public records request for Cuban’s response to the woman’s accusation. It also provided a report by the prosecutor’s office, saying charges were not filed and that the woman did not want to proceed with the allegations.
In an interview with the police, Cuban said he didn’t touch the woman.
League spokesman Mike Bass announced on Wednesday, the NBA is looking into the findings by the Portland news source.
In February, Sports Illustrated reported about the work environment for women based in the Mavericks’ office. More than a dozen former and current employees described the workplace culture as “hostile.”
