LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles Lakers spokesman says there are “different interpretations” about what happened during an interaction between players Nick Young and Jordan Clarkson and a woman who accused them of harassing her.
Coach Byron Scott also says he spoke with the players about Sunday night’s incident in Hollywood with Alexis Jones, an activist and public speaker against sexual harassment and domestic violence.
Jones claims that at least one of the two players gestured obscenely at her and her mother while the parties’ cars were stopped at an intersection in Hollywood.
Team spokesman John Black says the Lakers “support Nick and Jordan and believe what they told us about the incident and their actions.”
Black also says the Lakers are “supportive” of Jones’ feelings about what happened and her organization’s work against harassment.
