SI Uncovers Dallas Mavericks' "Corrosive Workplace Culture"

The Dallas Mavericks are under fire around a Sports Illustrated investigation from L. Jon Wertheim and Jessica Luther detailing a “corrosive workplace culture.” 

The piece includes extensive allegations of repeated sexual harassment against former team president and CEO Terdema Ussery (who held that role from 1997-2015), accusations of repeated inaction on harassment complaints from former VP of marketing Paul Monroe and HR director Buddy Pittman (Monroe left in 2014, Pittman was fired Monday after SI asked owner Mark Cuban for comment), and details of a 2012 guilty plea to misdemeanor assault conviction by beat writer Earl K. Sneed around an instance of domestic violence. It also has  further allegations of domestic violence against Sneed from a coworker in 2014. Sneed was first suspended Monday, then fired.
