Dallas Mavericks forward Kristaps Porzingis is being investigated in New York for an alleged rape that a woman told police took place previous year, according to a New York Post report.

A lawyer for Dallas Mavericks big man Kristaps Porzingis has issued a statement regarding reported rape allegations from Porzingis' time with the Knicks. She said the money would have been used to pay her brother's tuition and the potential payment was why she waited over a year to report the incident.

The woman, who lived in the same building as Porzingis, alleged he raped her on February 7, 2018, in his Manhattan penthouse.

Once inside, the towering, 7-foot-3 Latvian allegedly held her down and raped her, she told cops, according to sources.

The case has reportedly been taken over by the NYPD's Special Victims Division.

A police spokesperson confirmed to The News a criminal report regarding Porzingis was made last week, but declined to detail the allegations.

The woman told police on Thursday about the alleged attack, according to the Post report, which cited law enforcement sources.

The Post reported that it's still unclear if any money ever changed hands.

Later, Porzingis' attorney Roland G. Riopelle released a statement.

The EU has been preparing for this since December 2017 and is now fully prepared for a "no-deal" scenario at midnight on 12 April. But her spokesman said she did not believe this would be "in the interests of the country".

"We made a formal referral to federal law enforcement on December 20th, 2018, based on the accuser's extortionate demands", he said. Riopelle said they also alerted the National Basketball Association to the matter months ago.

"We have been instructed by federal authorities not to comment", Cuban told The Post in an email.

The former Knicks star, who was traded to the Dallas Mavericks earlier this season, allegedly raped a neighbor hours after suffering a torn ACL injury.

"I just said: 'To a new beginning.'" We drink the shot and started the next day as a new beginning.

The Knicks traded Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks on January 31, 2019.

"This is Kristaps' personal matter and not related to the Knicks", a team spokesman said.

Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Knicks, during the trade call to finalize the deal, told the Mavericks about a pending rape allegation against Porzingis - one that was brought to light Saturday evening.

"That's rare. And block shots - that's like a unicorn in this league".
