Frank Isola of the New York Daily News:
According to a team source, Brunson met with the organization’s Human Resources Department in February to file a formal complaint about being harassed by a member of the basketball support staff regarding a social media post.
Brunson’s attorney hinted that his client may have been the victim of retaliation.“Unfortunately, all of the allegations against Mr. Brunson followed his complaint,” Milstein added.
Uncovering the truth in these situations is often difficult. Hopefully, justice prevails.
