OKC Thunder Rookie Josh Giddey Faces Investigation Over Alleged Inappropriate Relationship with Underage Girl

The NBA is probing claims that OKC Thunder player Josh Giddey was involved in a relationship with a minor. An anonymous social media user alleged that the girl in videos and photos with Giddey was a high school junior. The post has since been deleted and the account deactivated. The Athletic reported that the NBA is looking into these allegations. NBA spokesman Mike Bass confirmed that they are investigating the matter. When questioned about the accusation, Giddey declined to comment. OKC Thunder coach Mark Daigneault also refused to discuss the matter, calling it a personal issue. Giddey continues to play for the Thunder, with impressive statistics. He was a first-round pick in 2021 and was named to the All-Rookie second team. He also had a strong performance at the World Cup this summer, averaging 19.4 points for the Australian team.
