The New York Knicks of the North American Basketball League are suing the only Canadian team in the NBA, the Toronto Raptors, over the theft of confidential files. The shorts are demanding more than ten million dollars in compensation from the predatory dinosaurs, reports the French news agency AFP.
The New York team does not want NBA commissioner Adam Silver to get involved in the matter as a mediator or to rule on the matter because of his close ties to Raptors owner Larry Tanenbaum, chairman of the NBA’s board of governors.
That’s according to the Knicks’ legal filing, which was obtained Monday by the New York Post, the Athletic and ESPN.
The Knicks allege that Ike Azotam, who worked as an assistant video coordinator for the Shortstops from 2020 to 2023, sent predators thousands of confidential files related to the operations of the New York club.
The defendants also include Raptors coach Darko Rajaković, assistant coaches Noah Lewis and Azotam, several unidentified Raptors employees and Raptors parent company Maple Leaf Sport and Entertainment (MLSE).
