According to a report in Williamette Week, a publication based in Portland, Oregon, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was accused of sexual assault by a woman in 2011, after an alleged incident in a Portland bar.

Cuban has denied that such an incident took place.

Bass said, via The Associated Press, that the league is also reviewing subsequent findings from the Portland police investigation.

The woman claimed Cuban reached inside her trousers and penetrated her vagina with his finger while they were taking a picture in a Portland nightclub.

Additionally, Cuban emailed multiple media outlets, simply saying "It didn't happen".

A recent report reveals that one of the stars of ABC's "Shark Tank", Mark Cuban, was the subject of a 2011 sexual assault investigation, which ultimately resulted in no charges being filed.

This comes just weeks after a bombshell Sports Illustrated report, alleging sexual harrassment and domestic violence issues within the Mavericks organization.

"I really left it in the past", she told Jaquiss. In it, the woman's friend said that Cuban was, "Very drunk" and that "His eyes were half closed, he was unstable on his feet, and he was slurring his words".

The report also said the woman didn't want to proceed with the allegation. His attorney, Stephen Houze, told WW that the accusations are "false" and that the case was thoroughly investigated.

I haven't thought about it for seven years", but adds, "I filed the report because what he did was wrong.

In his 2011 memo, Rees wrote that investigators interviewed friends of the woman with her at the nightclub as well as employees and other patrons. "I stand behind that report 1,000%". "In one of the pictures, his arm can be seen behind [the alleged victim] and it appears Cuban is reaching down toward her buttocks".

Cuban later told detectives that he had been at the nightclub that evening with Kevin Love, the National Basketball Association star who had grown up in Lake Oswego, Willamette Week reported.

Cuban answered "no" to all three questions and the examiner concluded that he was telling the truth, Rees wrote, though the prosecutor acknowledged that polygraph results would not be admissible in court.
