Details of Mavericks' sexual harassment investigation unveiled

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban will donate $10 million to women's organizations following a seven-month investigation into sexual harassment allegations within the organization, the National Basketball Association (NBA) said on Wednesday.

Seven months after sexual harassment and other evidence of a "corrosive workplace culture" were exposed at Mavericks headquarters, details from the investigation that followed are set to be revealed Wednesday afternoon.

According to the NBA's report about the investigation, the Mavericks were found to have "serious workplace misconduct by former and current employees" and "improper or ineffective management".

The Sports Illustrated report described "a corporate culture rife with misogyny and predatory sexual behavior" in the Mavericks' organization, including multiple allegations against former CEO and president Terdema Ussery, who repeatedly requested sex from employees and allegedly touched women's legs during meetings, as well as other forms of sexual harassment.

Cuban declined further comment to CNN.

The statement said that Cuban had agreed "to contribute $10 million to organizations committed to supporting women's leadership and development in sports and combating domestic violence".

Commissioner Adam Silver said Cuban "reacted swiftly, thoroughly and transparently" to the matter and that he is "ultimately responsible for the culture and conduct of his employees".
