Cuban declined further comment when contacted by ESPN. He then went home and invited the woman to his luxury Manhattan apartment where she alleges she was sexually assaulted, the Post said the woman told police. After a careful investigation of the allegation, we shared our results with the National Basketball Association, the Knicks, and ultimately the Mavericks as well. "Please refer any questions to the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the National Basketball Association".
The former Knicks star, who was traded to the Dallas Mavericks earlier this season, allegedly raped a neighbor hours after suffering a torn ACL injury. Mavs owner Mark Cuban told the Post in an email that the club was aware of the accusation. She accepted an invitation to Porzingis' suite.
While playing for the Knicks past year, Porzingis suffered a major knee injury during a game at Madison Square Garden against the Milwaukee Bucks that the Knicks lost.
The woman said she waited more than a year to report the rape because of the money Porzingis promised in exchange for her silence.

She earlier posted photos while she was undergoing hair changes and the same confirmed that her new look was permanent and not a wig.
The accuser is "believable", the source said, despite her not reporting the alleged attack until over a year later, and her admission to cops that she discussed getting $68,000 in hush money from him, the Post reported. He never played for the Knicks again due to the injury and the recent trade. While the accuser did not make any claim against Porzingis (currently a member of the Dallas Mavericks) until just recently, the alleged attack occurred on February 7, 2018.
According to an ESPN report, which cited unidentified league sources, in a call finalizing the trade, NY informed Dallas of the rape allegation.
"This is Kristaps' personal matter and not related to the Knicks", a team spokesman said.
