Free agent Jamil Wilson was set to sign a 10-day contract with the Lakers, but Los Angeles backed out of the deal when his name was mentioned in a lawsuit from an ex-girlfriend.
She claims that Wilson, 27, knew he had an STD while they were dating and never told her even though the pair continued to have unprotected sex.
“Jamil has been irreparably harmed by the recent accusation, which has now resulted in damage to his NBA career,” Wilson’s agent Steve McCaskill told ESPN.
“We will not tolerate these false accusations, but will pursue all legal remedies with the full force of the law.”
The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Wilson would’ve been active for the Lakers’ game against the Spurs on Thursday if the team would’ve gone ahead with the deal.
