NBA Suspends Ex-San Antonio Spurs Guard Joshua Primo for Exposing Himself to Women

On Friday, the NBA issued former San Antonio Spurs guard Joshua Primo a four-game suspension for allegedly exposing himself to women. An investigation revealed that he had “engaged in inappropriate and offensive behavior” last fall.

“The league conducted its own investigation and consulted with relevant experts. Following that process, the league found that Primo engaged in inappropriate and offensive behavior by exposing himself to women,” an NBA spokesperson said in the official statement.

“Primo maintains that his conduct was not intentional, and the league did not find any evidence that he engaged in any sexual or other misconduct apart from these brief exposures. Nevertheless, this behavior does not conform to the league standards and warrants discipline.”

Dr. Hillary Cauthen, Primo’s former therapist, was the first woman to speak out against Joshua Primo after she claimed last fall that he exposed himself to her on nine separate occasions.

Dr. Cauthen’s attorney, Tony Buzbee, alleged the Spurs were aware of Primo’s actions but didn’t take action.

Cauthen then filed a lawsuit against Primo and the Spurs. However, Primo’s attorney at the time believed the allegations were “a complete fabrication, a gross embellishment or utter fantasy.”
