Avery Bradley has denied a sexual assault allegation through his attorney, who told TMZ Sports that Bradley has a confidentiality agreement with the accuser "to protect the reputation and privacy of Mr. Bradley and his family."

The woman said she was sexually assaulted in May in Cleveland, TMZ reported. Bradley had been in Cleveland at the time while playing in the Eastern Conference.

Bradley's attorney, Brian Wolf of Lavely & Singer in Los Angeles, told TMZ that his client maintains his innocence. 

Negotiations for the confidentiality agreement began after the woman contacted Bradley and accused him of assaulting her, TMZ reported. Bradley ultimately paid the woman an undisclosed amount as part of the agreement.

The NBA, Pistons and Celtics have yet to comment.
