Attorney: NBA star Kristaps Porzingis is accused of rape

The New York Knicks are believed to have informed the Dallas Mavericks of the rape allegations before they consented to their trade on January 31st.

Porzingis' representatives also haven't made any comment thus far due not being aware of what's in the police report on the allegations against the player. The alleged incident occurred on February 7, 2018, hours after Porzingis - then a member of the New York Knicks - tore his left ACL during a game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban told the Post via email that "we have been instructed by federal authorities not to comment", although the team is aware of the accusation. Porzingis was drafted by the Knicks in 2013. She only reported the alleged attack to police Thursday and apparently was in discussions for $68,000 in hush money.

Porzingis reportedly visited her apartment at 2 a.m., then invited her back to his place, at which point the alleged rape occurred.

A high-ranking source with the NYPD told the Post that the woman in her 20s is considered credible. After a careful investigation of the allegation, we shared our results with the National Basketball Association, the Knicks, and ultimately the Mavericks as well. We made a formal referral to federal law enforcement on December 20th, 2018, based on the accuser's extortionate demands. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Knicks informed the Mavericks about the allegation before completing the trade and the National Basketball Association league office had also been previously made aware of the situation.

"The NYPD's Special Victims Division has taken over the case and is investigating, the sources said".

The Knicks were reportedly contacted by the New York Post about the allegation.

Porzingis has not played in a game this season as he recovers from injury.
