The Knicks ended correspondence with the woman in November and last wrote to her that they "decided to retain counsel to represent him and they will be in touch with you shortly".

The Mavericks released the following statement: "It is our understanding that Kristaps was jumped and assaulted outside of a club in Latvia".

However, Porzingis has yet to play with Dallas, since he is recovering from a torn ACL. In March, he was accused of sexual assault by a woman in NY, who claims the basketball star raped her in 2018.

The Mavs acquired Porzingis from the Knicks in a seven-player trade in January.

A Porzingis representative has not responded to various media requests at this time.
