The Brooklyn Nets have been slapped with a lawsuit seeking $1 million in damages for allegedly reneging on the terms of a sponsorship deal with Borough Park Physical Therapy, according to the the New York Post:

“Borough Park Physical Therapy signed an agreement with the Nets to be one of their sponsors and the Nets strung them along, got about $250,000 from them, and then once they had the money they failed to provide the print advertising and player appearances,” said plaintiff’s attorney Asher Gulko.

The Brooklyn Supreme Court suit claims the Nets have done this to other companies, too.

“Defendants have acted identically, and made similar false representations, to other corporate sponsors for the purpose of inducing them to enter into further agreements to their detriment,” says the suit, filed Thursday, which asks for $1 million in damages.

There have been no other lawsuits with similar allegations brought forth by other Nets sponsors as of this time. A team spokesman said the Nets are reviewing the lawsuit at this time, according to the Post.
