NBA Closes Investigation Into Josh Giddey

May 23, 2024 2:47 PM

The NBA has closed its investigation into Josh Giddey amid allegations he had an inappropriate relationship with an underage girl.

Newport Beach (Calif.) police announced in January that it had been "unable to corroborate any criminal activity" by Giddey and would not pursue charges.

The NBA came to a similar conclusion and closed its investigation.

In a since-deleted post, an anonymous social media user said a girl who is seen with Giddey in videos and photographs was a high school junior at the time. The social media account was deactivated since making the post.

Giddey has declined to comment about the allegations.
