The NBA has imposed a four-game suspension on former San Antonio Spurs guard Joshua Primo, following its findings that he exposed his private parts to multiple women. The league made the announcement on Friday morning, citing an investigation into the free agent’s behavior that revealed “inappropriate and offensive conduct.”
NBA officials labeled his actions as “conduct detrimental to the league.” However, they clarified that there was no evidence to suggest he engaged in any other sexual or misconduct beyond these brief exposures.
Primo has maintained that his actions were unintentional, according to the league.
The allegations against Primo first came to light when his former therapist, Dr. Hillary Cauthen, claimed last fall that he exposed himself to her on nine separate occasions. Cauthen’s attorney, Tony Buzbee, alleged that the Spurs were aware of Primo’s actions but failed to take action.
In response, Cauthen filed a lawsuit against Primo and the Spurs. Primo’s attorney at the time vehemently denied the allegations, characterizing them as a “complete fabrication, a gross embellishment, or utter fantasy.”
Primo, who was released by the Spurs in October 2022, was the 12th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and had played in 54 games before the allegations emerged. During his time in the league, he averaged 5.9 points and 1.8 assists per game.
