The NBA is investigating Oklahoma City Thunder guard Josh Giddey for an inappropriate relationship with a minor, as per league spokesman Mike Bass.
The NBA is looking into allegations that the 21-year-old Giddey is in an inappropriate relationship with a underage girl.
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 has since been deactivated.
Giddey and Thunder coach Mark Daigneault declined to comment when asked on Friday. “I understand the question obviously, but there’s no comment right now,” Giddey said.
Giddey is averaging 12.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4.5 assists on the season. He was the No. 6 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.
