OKLAHOMA CITY -- Attorney Gloria Allred has confirmed that she is representing the family of the girl with whom Oklahoma City Thunder guard Josh Giddey is alleged to have had an improper relationship.
Allred has been a famous advocate for women in cases against powerful men and celebrities for decades. She did not elaborate in an email response, saying: "We have no comment."
In a since-deleted post, an anonymous social media user last month said a girl who is seen with Giddey in videos and photographs was a high school junior at the time. The social media account has since been deactivated.
Giddey, who is from Australia, turned 21 in October. He and the Thunder have declined to comment on the situation so far.
Giddey is averaging 12.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game for an Oklahoma City team that is off to a 13-6 start, second best in the Western Conference. He has started all four games since the allegations were made but played a season-low 17 minutes in Saturday's win at Dallas.
Giddey was the No. 6 pick in the 2021 draft and was named to the All-Rookie second team during the 2021-22 season. Last season, he averaged 16.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 6.2 assists. At this year's FIBA Basketball World Cup, he averaged a team-high 19.4 points for an Australia team that went 3-2.
