Explosive 'Sports Illustrated' report uncovers Mavericks' hostile workplace culture

NBA Betting News: Dallas Mavericks openly discuss tanking Mavericks owner Mark Cuban: Tanking is 'our best option'
Orlando Vargas | 22 February, 2018, 01:20

The team issued a statement on the subject Tuesday saying it has "only learned of the scope of these complaints in the past days". It did not name the employee.?

I get a lot of unsolicited e-mails from a whole lot of sports organizations I've never interacted with or covered by the one that landed early this morning trumpeting this weekend's season-opening games in the Botswana Rugby Union League might take the cake as the most random. He was the subject of an internal investigation when Ross Perot Jr. still owned the franchise, and, according to multiple sources, that misconduct continued until he left the organization in 2015. "And then you wonder why there aren't more women working in sports".

How could a hands-on National Basketball Association owner like Cuban be unaware of such allegations?

"It's wrong. It's abhorrent. It's not a situation we condone", Cuban told SI. "Do we have any issues I have to be aware of?' And the answer was no". The employee was in charge of receiving and investigating "such complaints and report them accurately and fully".

Several women described a workplace culture that was rampant with abuse and that higher-ups, inside the Mavericks organization, were not only aware but threatened to fire employees who didn't "shut up" and do their jobs, according to SI. The Mavericks did not reveal if the employee left on his own terms or if he was sacked.

On Tuesday night, Sneed tweeted that he was leaving the team after seven years but gave no reason for his departure. She showed up to work with a swollen face and reported the incident to her immediate supervisor and Pittman. 'Actually, I'm going to the movies with friends'.

The Mavs also announced that an employee has been terminated for misleading the organization about a prior domestic violence incident. I abided by the details of that contract for four years, and received counseling during that period to avoid future instances.

None of the team's athletes are accused of misconduct, nor is the team owner, billionaire Mark Cuban.

Incidentally, the players became a reprieve from the misogyny and inappropriate front office "locker room talk".

"No." Ussery insisted. "You're definitely getting gang-banged".

It's hear and details institutionalized harassment that goes to the highest levels of the organizations and elicited this response from Mark Cuban and this from the team website reporter named in the original piece.

Cuban went on to say: "Terdema [Ussery] was hired before I got here, and the assertions you made were news to me". Cuban contends that he was "not involved in the day to day" of the business, deferring instead to the CEO and to HR. That's why I just deferred.

"I mean, this is, obviously there's a problem in the Mavericks organisation and we've got to fix it". After leaving the Mavericks, he took a position with Under Armour but resigned after less than two months on the job.

Here were some of the other accusations against Ussery, as reported by SI.

No timetable was provided, but the Mavericks said in the team's statement that they would have no further comment until the investigation had been completed.

For what it's worth, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban told SI he was "sick to my stomach" after learning of the allegations against Sneed and Pittman's handling of the situation.

The NBA also responded to the report, calling the alleged behavior "completely unacceptable".
