Mark Cuban "sick to my stomach" over abuse allegations by Mavs employees

Ussery has not been charged with any crimes and left the team 3 years ago. It did not name the employee.? The statement also said: "The Mavericks organization takes these allegations extremely seriously".

The Mavericks announced they have hired outside counsel to investigate the extent of this issue.

That investigation will be conducted by Krutoy Law. This was more of the front office.

Cuban, who has owned the Mavericks since 2000, told Sports Illustrated he's going to clean up the organization.

Cuban called the actions by Ussery and Sneed "wrong" and "abhorrent" and said that the situation was not condoned by him or his team. SI reported that the team has also fired its director of human resources, who some of the victims claimed ignored or downplayed their allegations.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has been fined Sh60mn ($600,000) for statements detrimental to the National Basketball Association, commissioner Adam Silver announced on Wednesday, days after Cuban suggested his team should "tank".

Ussery responded to the recent allegations in a statement to Sports Illustrated.

Dallas Mavericks owner fires 2 employees after being alleged for sexual harassmentWhat's the story?

According to the report, then team president and CEO, Terdema Ussery, was making the life for any women that worked for the Mavericks organization a nightmare. "I was shocked. that our franchise, my franchise, that stuff like that was going on". That was after Sneed pled guilty to misdemeanor assault in a 2012 case of domestic violence and was accused of a second instance of domestic violence by another Mavericks' employee in 2014. This is like a year and a half of tanking and that was too brutal for me. Says one female former senior staffer: "I dealt with players all the time".

Both the report from Sports Illustrated and the Dallas Mavericks outline a number of employees who were involved in some way over the past 20 years. "Whatever happened on the business side, I can't really comment on".

By the way: If the type of behavior exhibited by Mavericks officials is "locker room talk", as President Trump infamously said, the actual locker room isn't the problem in Dallas.

"This is all new to me", he told SI. "That's why I just deferred. You tell that person they are about to lose their job if they don't figure it out". "And if there were anything like this at all I was supposed to be made aware, obviously I was not". He resigned from that position after less than two months.

And now we have another important Sports Illustrated piece about the toxic culture within the corporate offices of the Dallas Mavericks. The NBA said the Mavericks had informed the league of the allegations involving Ussery and Sneed. He's been allowed to take the lead in setting up the independent investigation, but the league office will keep close tabs and have access to all facets of it.
