Mark Cuban: Mavericks Employee Misconduct Claims Are 'All New' To Me

Mark Cuban says 'losing is best option' for Mavs. Do Hawks feel the same?

Numerous complaints were against former team president Terdema Ussery, who resigned from his position back in 2015.

Some of the notable commentary there includes Nichols saying Ussery's comments of "I am not aware of any sexual harassment complaints about me" are "actually just a flat-out lie" (1:57) given the six-week internal investigation of him in 1998, and her commentary at 2:43 about what this means for the organization. Allegations ranged from being propositioned by Ussery for sex, inappropriate touching and lewd comments. The head of HR Buddy Pittman has been fired since reports surfaced. In the report, Sneed then had another violent incident in 2014 with a fellow Mavericks employee, whose face was left swollen after the assault. Ussery worked for Under Armour briefly in 2015 as the president of global sports. He resigned from that position after less than two months.

Ussery himself was at the center of numerous allegations. Again, the team didn't fire Sneed. Sneed continued to work with the Mavs.

The team also says in a separate matter, they learned that an employee misled the organization about a prior domestic violence incident and that employee has been terminated.

The woman reported the incident with Sneed to her immediate supervisor and Pittman.

The report said Earl K. Sneed was twice accused of domestic assault while working for the Mavericks, including a guilty plea in a case that was dismissed when he met the conditions of the agreement. Yesterday we notified the league office and immediately hired outside counsel to conduct a thorough and independent investigation.

Anne Milgram, a former New Jersey attorney general whose law practice focuses on white-collar crime and government investigations, will be the lead investigator in consultation with Krutoy Law. A Mavs employee in charge of investigating human resources issues such as these has been suspended pending the conclusion or the Mavs' investigation, according to the statement.

When it comes to Cuban's response to these allegations, Sporting News' Sean Highkin pointed out the core problem.

"I'm probably not supposed to say this", Cuban said, "but, like, I just had dinner with a bunch of our guys the other night, and here we are, you know, we weren't competing for the playoffs".

"I want to deal with this issue". The question persists, though: how does an owner like Cuban, who has a reputation for being "proudly hyperattentive", as SI calls it, either not know about or not fix a problem that has persisted for so long?

"I deferred to the CEO, who at the time was Terdema, and to HR", Cuban told SI when asked about his knowledge of the misconduct. "The organization refused to address these concerns, and I believe these misleading claims about me are part of an attempt to shift blame for the failure to remove employees who created an uncomfortable and hostile work environment within the Mavericks organization".
