Porzingis is being investigated by NYPD law enforcement and sources told TMZ Sports that the 23-year-old Latvian pinned her down and proceeded to do unspeakable things.
"We are aware of the complaint that was made against Mr. Porzingis on Friday and unequivocally deny the allegations", Riopelle said in the statement.
The incident allegedly occurred on February 7, 2018 - just hours after the 7-foot-3 Latvian suffered a devastating ACL tear in his left knee at Madison Square Garden.
The Mavericks and Knicks both declined to comment on the matter.
The New YorkPost reported their source describe the accuser as "believable", even though she did not report the alleged attack until more than a year later and has admitted to cops that she discussed getting $68,000 in hush money from the multimillionaire basketballer.
Porzingis reportedly visited her apartment at 2 a.m., then invited her back to his place, at which point the alleged rape occurred.
We can not comment further on an ongoing federal investigation. We also alerted the National Basketball Association months ago and they are aware of the ongoing investigation of the accuser by federal law enforcement.
Porzingis' reps said they could not comment about the accusation because they have not seen the police report, according to the Post. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Knicks informed the Mavericks about the allegation before completing the trade and the National Basketball Association league office had also been previously made aware of the situation.
The case has reportedly been taken over by the NYPD's Special Victims Division.
The Post reported that it's still unclear if any money ever changed hands. In it, he says a formal referral to federal law enforcement was made on December 20, 2018, "based on the accuser's extortionate demands".
Porzingis was traded to the Mavericks on January 31, though he has yet to make an appearance on the court as he is still recovering from the ACL injury.
