Joshua Primo has a perfectly lame excuse for exposing himself.
The Young former Spurs player explanation for allegedly exposing himself to a former Spurs employee is kind of weak. Primo, a first-round draft pick last year, was recently released by the San Antonio Spurs last week but it would soon be announced that he was accused of exposing himself to multiple women, including a team employee. A team psychologist is the one alleging that Primo exposed himself to her, but he now denying doing that on purpose.
“But, sources close to Primo are insistent he never intentionally exposed his privates, and if anything was visible at any time, it was strictly a wardrobe malfunction resulting from laying down on a couch in basketball shorts,” the outlet writes.
The accuser has been identified as Dr. Hillary Cauthen by her attorney, Tony Buzbee, who has become well known for representing multiple women who sued Deshaun Watson for sexual misconduct. Primo’s camp believes that “he’s a young guy who’s being taken advantage of by a medical professional twice his age,” according to TMZ.
“I know that you all are surprised by today’s announcement,” Primo said in a statement to ESPN last week after his release but before allegations emerged. “I’ve been seeking help to deal with previous trauma I suffered and will now take this time to focus on my mental health treatment more fully. I hope to be able to discuss these issues in the future so I can help others who have suffered in a similar way. I appreciate privacy at this time.”
As for the Spurs, Gregg Popovich‘s squad hasn’t addressed the allegations … but did issue a statement after parting ways with Primo, saying, “It is our hope that, in the long run, this decision will serve the best interest of both the organization and Joshua.”
In four games this season, Joshua Primo averaged 23 minutes and seven points per game for the Spurs.
