Sexual Harassment Allegations Made Against Additional Mavs' Employee

Oct 5, 2018 9:22 AM

The Dallas Mavericks are facing new allegations about sexual harassment just two weeks after the NBA released their report about misconduct within the franchise.

Four former female employees who spoke on the condition of anonymity said team photographer Danny Bollinger has a history of propositioning female co-workers and making lewd comments in the workplace.

Bollinger has the title of publishing manager and has been friends with Mark Cuban since the 1990s. According to a 2002 Sports Illustrated story, Bollinger introduced Cuban to his future wife, Tiffany Stewart, in 1997. At the time, Bollinger was dating Stewart's sister, Jamie.

Bollinger's alleged behavior wasn't included in the 43-page report.

Dirk Nowitzki Could Miss Beginning Of Regular Season

Oct 3, 2018 3:09 PM

Dirk Nowitzki continues to slowly recover from his April ankle surgery and could miss the start of the regular season.

Nowitzki has yet to practice with the Dallas Mavericks this preseason.

"This is weeks, not days, as far as getting on the court for live action," Rick Carlisle said. "He is making gradual progress, but we're not just at a point where we can talk about a hard timeline or anything like that."

The Mavs anticipated after the surgery that Nowitzki would be fully cleared for training camp, but he suffered a setback the week before camp opened. Nowitzki aggravated the injury playing pickup games with soreness in his Achilles tendon.

Adam Silver Encourages Teams To Hire More Women

Sep 21, 2018 9:41 PM

Adam Silver wants all teams to hire more women, especially in leadership and supervisory positions.

Silver, in a memo sent to all teams Friday and obtained by ESPN, also asked teams to thoroughly review the report that was released earlier this week about the Mavericks. 

"Use this opportunity to make changes and create a dialogue within your organizations about workplace policies, procedures and respectful conduct," Silver wrote.

The investigation made clear that others within the organization were allowing an environment in which workplace misconduct was rampant.

"Respect and integrity are core NBA values, and we all must work to ensure that they are reflected in the culture and workplaces of our organizations," Silver wrote.

Mavericks Likely To Start Luka Doncic At Power Forward, Dirk Nowitzki Off Bench

Sep 21, 2018 9:30 PM

Dirk Nowitzki is likely to play a reserve role for the Dallas Mavericks this season.

The Mavericks signed DeAndre Jordan in free agency to play center, which has been Nowitzki's primary position over the past two seasons. Dallas is also expected to start Luka Doncic at power forward.

"When we signed DeAndre, it was pretty much clear in my head that I'm coming off the bench," Nowitzki said at the Mavs' media day Friday. "It's all about winning, at the end of the day. Whatever puts us in the best position to win is what we're going to roll with, and coach Carlisle has obviously shown over his time here that he's willing to try anything.

"If that's the case, and I'm coming off the bench, we better keep [an exercise] bike ready and keep a couple of massage therapists in the back, and I'll be ready to go."
