It has been nearly six months since Sports IllustratedA published a lengthy exposA©A on a corrosive culture towards women in the Dallas Mavericksa€™ workplace, and the franchise has still not released the results of its investigation. Anecdotally, it feels like a large portion of the sports viewing population has forgotten all about it.

On July 10th,A Rachel NicholsA asked NBA CommissionerA Adam Silver,A at the 22-minute mark of this press conference in Las Vegas, about the status. a€œThe last report I got, which was very recent, is that they expect to complete this investigation by the end of this month a€” by the end of July,a€ Silver responded.

If the investigation has been completed, it hasna€™t been publicized. Mavericks spokesperson Sarah Melton said by email in May that they did not have a timetable to share at that point, and has not yet responded to a follow-up email sent Monday.

I askedA Jon Wertheim, who co-authored the SI story along with Jessica Luther, about his thoughts on how long this is taking. a€œOn its face, I am surprised the investigation has taken this long,a€ Wertheim said. a€œBut Ia€™m inclined to reserve judgment until I see the substance. If the investigators have uncovered additional material or whistleblowersA  a€” or expanded their inquiry to the America Airlines Center a€” the timetable might well be validated.a€
