Kristaps Porzingis Accused of Rape, NYPD Investigating

Report: NYPD investigating rape claim against Porzingis

He was traded from the New York Knicks to the Dallas Mavericks a year later.

A lawyer for Porzingis, who now plays for the Dallas Mavericks, said the player denies the allegation "unequivocally".

Porzingis was playing for the New York Knicks and had sustained a torn ACL just hours before the alleged attack, which the woman told police happened February 7, 2018, at the Sky building in New York where Porzingis lived.

"We have been instructed by federal authorities not to comment", Cuban told The Post in an email. Porzingis was drafted by the Knicks in 2013.

The New York Post on Saturday reported the news regarding Porzingis.

It remains to be seen what steps are taken next as the investigation remains ongoing.

The woman made her stunning allegation against the 23-year-old player on Thursday afternoon - and investigators consider her credible, one high-ranking NYPD source told The Post. After a careful investigation of the allegation, we shared our results with the National Basketball Association, the Knicks, and ultimately the Mavericks as well.

Porzingis reportedly visited her apartment at 2 a.m., then invited her back to his place, at which point the alleged rape occurred. Riopelle said they also alerted the National Basketball Association to the matter months ago.

The case is now being handled by the NYPD Special Victims unit.

The $68,000 was supposed to pay for her brother's college tuition, but Porzingis reneged on the deal, the woman reportedly told police.

The Post reported that it's still unclear if any money ever changed hands. We made that referral to law enforcement in December 2018, and she continued to demand money over the past few months and has now apparently gone to law enforcement on her own.

The Mavericks were also reportedly fully aware of the allegations against Porzingis when they chose to trade for him this season, and still pulled the trigger on the trade.
