Billy King’s official statement on alleged sexual assault case

Posted on: January 8th, 2013 by Devin Kharpertian Comments

We are aware of the ongoing police investigation regarding a member of the Brooklyn Nets. We will have no further comment until the investigation has concluded. All of our players are available for tonight's game.

As reported earlier today by CBS and NBC Philadelphia, an unnamed Nets player was brought in by Philadelphia's Special Victims Unit in connection with an alleged sexual assault in Philadelphia last night. The player, according to reports, was in the suite where the alleged incident occurred, but not in the room.

Going to re-hash what I said earlier: as the player is still unnamed, I'd like to ask that we refrain from the "guessing game," both in the comments here and in general. Sexual assault is not a topic that lends well to games.
