Porzingis accused of rape in NY

Report: Kristaps Porzingis under investigation for alleged rape

Kristaps Porzingis attends an Oklahoma City Thunder vs. According to the woman, the National Basketball Association superstar invited her to his penthouse on February 7, 2018 following the game against Milwaukee in which he tore his ACL and she waited to tell the police because he promised her $68,000 to keep quiet and pay her brother's college tuition-and then he took back his offer.

"We have been instructed by federal authorities not to comment", Mavericks owner Mark Cuban wrote in an email to the Post.

We are aware of the complaint that was made against Mr. Porzingis on Friday and unequivocally deny the allegations.

An attorney for Kristaps Porzingis acknowledges that a woman has accused the National Basketball Association star of rape, but says the Dallas Mavericks forward "unequivocally" denies the allegation.

The woman reportedly admitted to police she waited over a year to report the incident as Porzingis had promised to pay her $68,000 for her silence but later refused. The Post reports that she brought the claims to the NYPD this past Thursday, which consider her claims credible and "believable".

Once inside, the towering, 7-foot-3 Latvian allegedly held her down and raped her, she told cops, according to sources.

Lawyer Roland Riopelle said the claim was part of an extortion attempt that is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

We can not comment further on an ongoing federal investigation. He said they alerted federal law enforcement in December to the accuser's "extortionate demands".

An NYPD spokesperson would not confirm the Post report, issuing this statement: "The NYPD takes sexual assault and all rape cases extremely seriously, and urges anyone who has been a victim to file a report so we can perform a comprehensive investigation, and offer support and services to survivors".

According to an ESPN report, which cited unidentified league sources, in a call finalizing the trade, NY informed Dallas of the rape allegation.

Former New York Knicks executive Phil Jackson, left, and first-round draft pick Kristaps Porzingis address the media at the Madison Square Garden Training Facility on June 26, 2015, in Tarrytown, N.Y. Porzingis was traded to the Dallas Mavericks on January 31, 2019.

Porzingis hasn't played since his injury last February, and was traded to the Mavericks earlier this season on February 1st.
