Porzingis accused of rape in NY

Mavs Kristaps Porzingis Knicks

Porzingis is being investigated by NYPD law enforcement and sources told TMZ Sports that the 23-year-old Latvian pinned her down and proceeded to do unspeakable things.

"We are aware of the complaint that was made against Mr. Porzingis on Friday and unequivocally deny the allegations", Porzingis' attorney Roland Riopelle told the press.

While playing for the Knicks a year ago, Porzingis suffered a major knee injury during a game at Madison Square Garden against the Milwaukee Bucks that the Knicks lost.

New York Police Department officials declined to comment.

Porzingis reportedly visited her apartment at 2 a.m., then invited her back to his place, at which point the alleged rape occurred.

The woman told cops she waited over a year to talk to police because Porzingis allegedly promised to give her money to keep her quiet, the sources 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.

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 NBA says they are aware of the situation, but have not commented further.

"We made a formal referral to federal law enforcement on 20 December 2018, based on the accuser's extortionate demands", Riopelle said in a statement.

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

According to the New York Post, the NYPD's Special Victims Division has taken over the case.

Porzingis hasn't played since his injury last February, and was traded to the Mavericks earlier this season on February 1st.
