Avery Bradley settled with woman who brought sexual assault claim, TMZ reports

Pistons guard Avery Bradley has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman while she was passed out drunk last spring during the National Basketball Association playoffs.

Following the alleged incident, the woman contacted Bradley with the accusation and they made a deal to prevent her from releasing photos, video or audio.

Avery Bradley was accused of sexual assault earlier this year and paid the accuser to stay silent, according to TMZ Sports.

Bradley's lawyer told TMZ Sports that Bradley "adamantly denies all wrongdoing" and entered into the confidential agreement to prevent false information from going public.

Bradley, who was traded to the Detroit Pistons in July, vehemently denied all wrongdoing to TMZ, via his attorney. Bradley was in Cleveland at the time, playing with the Celtics in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals. "The confidentiality agreement specifically refutes and denies the validity of all allegations of any wrongful conduct by Mr. Bradley", Wolf said, according to the report.

The report states that the allegation stems from an incident on May 23 in Cleveland.

It's unclear what Bradley agreed to pay the woman, but TMZ reports that negotiations got as high as $400,000. He said the goal of the confidentiality agreement was to protect Bradley's reputation and privacy.

Wolf added, "My office will take all appropriate action against all persons involved in the wrongful disclosure of this agreement".

The 27-year-old Bradley spent the first seven seasons of his National Basketball Association career with the Celtics before getting traded to the Pistons during the offseason. He's averaging 15.7 points - just under his career high of 16.3 last season - on 43 percent shooting, including 41 percent from behind the 3-point arc.
