Kristaps Porzingis investigated for rape claim

They say the woman claims she was raped by Porzingis on February 7, hours after the former Knicks star suffered a torn ACL during a game.

More details have emerged about the rape allegations against former Knick-turned-Maverick Kristaps Porzingis, and they are incredibly disturbing. After a careful investigation of the allegation, we shared our results with the National Basketball Association, the Knicks, and ultimately the Mavericks as well.

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. She accuses Porzingis of holding her down and raping her, according to a Post source, after she accepted his invitation to his apartment in the Sky building in Midtown West after 2 a.m.


Mark Cuban, in an email to the Post, said the team is aware of the accusation, but "we have been instructed by federal authorities not to comment". 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.

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". She said the money would have been used to pay her brother's tuition and the potential payment was why she waited over a year to report the incident. 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.

Porzingis didn't play for the Knicks again, and has yet to make his debut for the Mavericks as he continues his injury recovery.
