Dallas Mavs To Probe Harassment Claims Against Ex-CEO

One main culprit of the alleged misconduct is former Mavs CEO and President Terdema Ussery, a Princeton graduate with a masters from Harvard and a law degree from Cal-Berkeley, who was the subject of numerous complaints.

"Adam would hate to be hearing that".

"I'll never stand for losing on objective".

The Dallas Mavericks organization has been exposed for having a corrosive workplace culture, according to a report by Jon Wertheim and Jessica Luther of Sports Illustrated.

Under the current format, the team with the worst record has a 25 per cent chance of landing the number one overall draft pick, followed by 19.9 per cent for the second-worst record and 15.6 percent for the third.

The NBA wasted no time responding to the sexual harassment scandal that has hit the Mavericks, announcing it has created a hotline for league and team employees to report improper conduct. Sports Illustrated ran an article that exposed the #Hostile Work Environment of the Dallas Mavericks.

Sneed was sacked Tuesday following a shocking report from Sports Illustrated detailing sexual harassment allegations in the Dallas Mavericks organization. "I got excited talking to Dr. J and said something I shouldn't have". But I think (Cuban) is trying to step up and lead this franchise to the right direction, and that is hiring investigators, finding out all the little details that we have to know as a franchise what really was going on.

Ussery said in a statement to SI: "I am deeply disappointed that anonymous sources have made such outright false and inflammatory accusations against me".

Cuban has vowed to clean up the organization.

The team fired website reporter Earl Sneed, who was twice accused of domestic assault while working for the team.

"Cuban was fined $600,000 by National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver Wednesday after Cuban publicly said his team tanking the remainder of the season as the 'best option". I also signed a contract stating that I would not have one-on-one contact or fraternize with female employees after the inaccurately described incident with my female co-worker, who was a live-in girlfriend. "Yesterday we notified the league office and immediately hired outside counsel to conduct a thorough and independent investigation", the organization said in a statement. She told SI that while shocked she was not surprised because she had been warned about Ussery. It might happen, but you don't play for it. I'll send them to training, I'll send them to sensitivity training. The NBA says that it will be closely monitoring the investigation.
