NBA reviewing sexual assault allegations against Mavericks ownwe Mark Cuban
The NBA says they are reviewing sexual assault allegations against Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and a police investigation that led to no charges being filed in the case.
The review comes a day after a weekly alternative newspaper in Portland, Oregon, reported that a woman said Cuban assaulted her in a club when he put his hands down her pants and touched her inappropriately.
''The NBA league office is reviewing the 2011 allegations against Mark Cuban and the subsequent findings from the Portland police investigation,'' Bass said.
Cuban has strongly denied the woman's allegations.
Authorities in Portland said that ''there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant's statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim."
SI reported that former Mavericks executive Terdema Ussery was accused of making sexually suggestive remarks to several women.
Cuban says he fired human resources director Buddy Pittman after the SI story, and also reported that that team reporter Earl Sneed was twice accused of domestic assault while working for the Mavericks. Sneed was also fired.
