The NBA is reviewing 2011 allegations of sexual assault against Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
Spokesmen for the league Mike Bass said the NBA was looking into the matter after a weekly alternative newspaper in Portland, reported a woman’s claim that Mark Cuban put his hands down her pants and touched her inappropriately while they were taking a photo at a nightclub in April, 2011.
Less than two weeks after Sports Illustrated exposed the Mavericks for having a hostile workplace environment for women, Cuban continues to be under the spotlight. The allegations on Ussery and the history of domestic violence from Earl Sneed, paints a dark picture of how much misconduct was allowed on Cuban’s watch. Only days after he fired his Human Resources Director Buddy Pittman, Mark Cuban is now digging himself out of an even deeper pit.
Cuban denied allegations and provided a prosecutors’ report detailing the decision not to file charges.
Prosecutors wrote: “there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant’s statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim.” The report also said the woman didn’t want to proceed with the allegation.
Investigations into the matter have resulted in insufficient evidence to further pursue the claims.
Though punishment for Cuban doesn’t look to be in the cards, the Dallas Mavericks organization has been under extreme speculation for the recent claims made on their employees.
Reps for Cuban did not respond to requests for further comment.
