The Dallas Mavericks are in for a drastic change.

According to Sports Illustrated, reporters Jon Wertheim & Jessica Luther have brought the sexual misconduct issue within the Mavericks organization to the surface. Apparently, the issues involve high-ranking employees and has been an ongoing issue.

The report states that former team president and CEO of the Mavericks, Terdema Ussery, was accused of sexual misconduct toward female Mavericks employees multiple times. Those same women said that Ussery would make inappropriate comments and would touch them inappropriately in the workplace.

According to SI, there have been multiple issues with the higher-ups turning a blind eye to these issues as they became a bigger problem.

But it gets worse.

There were a series of domestic violence cases that were wrongly dealt with involving a team reporter, Earl K. Sneed. Sneed was accused of hitting a female co-worker he was dating in 2014 only two years after he was charged with assaulting an ex-girlfriend. Through all that, the Mavericks continued to allow Sneed to stay on the payroll.

Since the report, Mark Cuban commented.

Since the report came out on Tuesday, Ussery has denied the claims.
