NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said he opted against a suspension for Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban following the league’s investigation into the Mavs’ workplace conditions because “there are no examples where owners have been suspended for someone else’s misconduct.”
On Friday, Brian Mahoney of the Associated Press provided comments from Silver, who said he felt a ban for Cuban could have set a dangerous precedent since he wasn’t directly implicated in any of the allegations of harassment from women within the organization.
“If owners, shareholders, even a CEO—and Mark was not the CEO in this case—are going to be held accountable for the misconduct of others within their organizations, what’s the standard that I’m going to be setting going forward and how many suspensions therefore am I talking about?” he said.
